About HonorsLounge

HonorsLounge is the offi­cial stu­dent blog of the Hon­ors Pro­gram at Tem­ple Uni­ver­sity. All con­tent is writ­ten, directed, edited, pro­duced, and every­thing else by stu­dents. The views expressed in the arti­cles are those of the author alone, and are not nec­es­sar­ily the opin­ions of the Tem­ple Uni­ver­sity Hon­ors Program.

This site is so much more than just a resource for the Tem­ple Hon­ors com­mu­nity. The cre­ators and con­trib­u­tors of the blog hope that many oth­ers will find both rel­e­vance and enter­tain­ment in the posts con­tained in these ­pages. HonorsLounge is for col­lege stu­dents every­where, for the peo­ple of the won­der­ful city of Philadelphia, and anyone anywhere looking for an interesting read or watch. So whether you’re a stu­dent look­ing for a pro­fes­sor rec­om­men­da­tion, or you’re a Philadel­phian won­der­ing what’s going on down­town, the peo­ple of HonorsLounge hope you find some­thing help­ful (and more) on the site.

It is part of the mix that makes Temple University a wonderful place to earn a degree.

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.
