And we’ve got some dollar bills, a flying bus and art-worthy smiles.

Cut the line
So about that line at the TECH—the one that resembles a mob of sleep-deprived Owls waiting for the next iPhone to drop. You know, the one for Starbucks. It’s time to cut it. Barge right past the crowd, take your Double Chocolaty Chip Crème Frappuccino Blended Crème (that’s real, FYI) and waltz out. All you need is some muscle an app. It’s called Tapingo and it’s now at Temple. Find it on the App Store and Google Play, and you can order from the ’Bucks, Cosi, Einstein Bros. and lots of other places. Ready now: pickup. Coming soon: delivery.
Use Tapingo

The flying school bus
Speaking of apps, have you taken Flight? Not a flight—the Flight. ICYMI: It’s an um, uber-cool transportation service that’s sort of like Temple’s very own Uber. Except it’s an evening shuttle bus that picks you up on demand, travels around campus and flies. (That would be two truths and a lie.) Here’s everything you need to know about Flight.
Take Flight

‘I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight’
...but we all definitely need them to get stuff done. Stuff like a community garden and new Diamond Band instruments and important mission trips and boxes that save newborns’ lives. All those initiatives have received dollar bills through OwlCrowd, and now it’s time for your project to snag some. Apply by Oct.1 to be considered for Temple’s awesome, semesterly crowdfunding campaign. Things that might get picked: tangible projects that need between $1,000 and $5,000. Things that won’t get picked: island getaways, a FroGro trip and your dorm room Post-it tribute to Harambe.
