About HonorsLounge

HonorsLounge is a blog written by students of all majors in the Temple University Honors Program, though the site is editorially independent of the Honors Program. The views and opinions expressed by the contributors and editors do not necessarily reflect those of any Temple administration.

We provide unique insights, ideas, and opinions about what’s happening, writing thoughtful and sometimes comical essays about everything in pop culture from social media to Scooby Doo. We also write news, but tend to keep it local, focusing on Honors events, students, and organizations. Rather than limiting ourselves to being a “just a student publication,” we also write about what’s happening in the city of Philadelphia.  

Contributors come from different majors but share a desire to curate creative content. We boast a diverse staff of videographers and photographers as well. We dig past the surface of things, even when others think we don’t have to. Never knew you wanted an in-depth (and witty) guide to the Radio Stations of GTA V, did you? Now you do. And who knew the Temple Owl could make for such a horrifying movie monster?

HonorsLounge is all about dissecting culture, both high and low, and serving it up in ways you hadn’t thought about before.


About the Temple University Honors Program

The Honors Program at Temple University is dedicated to providing high-achieving students with enriching academic opportunities, holistic advising, a dynamic and inclusive community, and strong encouragement and support along the way to commencement—and beyond.

It is part of the mix that makes Temple University a wonderful place to earn a degree. The faculty, renowned scholars from all schools at Temple University, lead small seminars in a variety of interesting subjects: Dissent in America, Religion in Philadelphia, Youth Cultures, and Cyberspace and Society (just to name a few).

The staff is dedicated to providing individualized advising on course selection, scholarships, fellowship applications, careers, and graduate schools.

The Program also offers housing in the Honors Living Learning Community in 1300, priority registration, graduate library lending privileges, and leadership, mentoring and programming opportunities through its student organizations.
