Hello there
Good morning, Owls. Rise and shine, Owls. Please get out of bed, Owls. Seriously, it’s almost time for class and we’ve literally been waiting 27 days to see you back on campus and running around looking for your classrooms in confusion. Plus, we’ve scheduled fireworks tonight for your first day back. JK, we couldn’t swing that. But it’s okay, ’cause baby, you’re a firework.

While you were home sipping hot cocoa and sleeping til noon and hanging out with your ferret, Temple was busy eating its feelings and binge-watching Black Mirror. Hahaha, actually we were busy ranking in the top 100 public colleges and universities in the country for best value; celebrating our alumni on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list; watching Fox’s online MBA program place No. 1 in the countryagain; and covering Annapolis in cherry and white pride for the bowl game that followed our victorious conference championship game. What break?

Point is, there’s so much to do now that you’re back. Watch some hoops on a stage. Watch some hoops on a court. Frolic on some frozen water. And try some herbal remedies when you catch a cold from being out on said frozen water. Here are eight ways to hop into the new year. ’Tis the season.
