We dig it
No, guys, that ginormous hole in the ground near Liacouras Walk is not an archaeological dig for fossils. It’s also not making way for a pool. And, no, we’re not digging to China. What Temple IS doing is building an epic new library the size of a city block. What Temple is also doing: building a new student wellness center, adoring its brand new sports complex with skyline views and drooling over the delicious restaurants opening on campus. Here are five fossils from China projects totally transforming Temple.

Not Nuts4Squirrels
Dear Owl: We need all of your passwords and bank account info—and lots and lots of squirrel pics—ASAP. Pls send to nuts4squirrels@trashcanbushytails. XO, Nutshell.

See that message above? We would NOT send that. (Ok, we would probably ask for squirrel pics.) But Temple would *never* ask for your password or sensitive personal information over email. So you should be wary if you get a request like that from us—or from Temple Security, the Help Desk or the Aunt Sally you don’t have, for that matter—cause it’s probably a scam. Since phishing scams often target college campuses, don’t click on links in suspicious emails but do forward them to abuse@temple.edu. Pls.

I don’t know, what do you wanna do?
We wanna go get tickets to see Ta-Nehisi Coates talk on campus next month. And we wanna get them pronto since they’re free to all students until Sept. 16, before they go on sale to the public. Coates is a renowned writer and an outspoken, leading voice on race in the U.S., which is why we’re super excited for his talk, presented by the College of Liberal Arts and titled “A Deeper Black: Race in America.”

Wednesday, Oct. 26, 6 p.m., Liacouras Center (free tickets available at box office until Sept. 16)
