Nah...FAFSA isn’t a swear word. Neither is xióng. And there’s nothing profane about free food.
Nutshell | A newsletter for Temple students

The F word
Stupid FAFSA, I hate you, FAFSA, don’t make me, FAFSA...may I please have some money, FAFSA? It’s that time of year—the time that sends shivers down our spines, and not just because of this weather. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fill out the five-letter acronym that might have you whispering four-letter words under your breath: FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Please note that those Fs don’t stand for “flesh-eating” and “fatal”; the form really isn’t that bad, and we’ve got some tips to get you through.
Clip from the video
Tiān pǔ xióng qǐ!
Try to say that 10 times fast. No, seriously, try! Five Temple students are competing to become the first-ever Mandarin Chinese broadcasters for Temple basketball games; in this video they show students how to cheer in Mandarin. Watch it and giggle at your fellow Owls as they try to say “Go, Owls” in Chinese, and then learn for yourself and turn it up Beijing-style at the next game, because wǒ shī tiān pǔ rén!
Drawing of fruit with a heart around it
I don’t know, what do you wanna do?
We wanna eat free food. We always wanna eat free food. This afternoon, sample free gluten-free and vegan treats to celebrate the Temple launch of Happy Hippy, a startup that will begin selling its fare on campus. The company’s cofounder will be there to both feed you and discuss how Blackstone LaunchPad helped her turn an idea she was passionate about (making healthy foods more accessible) into a successful business—in less than a year. Never heard of Blackstone? It’s a campus-based entrepreneurship program that helps Temple community members launch their own companies and has resources available to you. Yes, you. So one day you can provide the free food instead of gobbling it up.
Monday, Jan. 25, 4–5 p.m., Blackstone LaunchPad, Howard Gittis Student Center, lower level
We’ll email you every Monday morning; you can contact us whenever you want. We’d love to hear your feedback and story ideas, or anything else you think we should know.
