But there are free movies. And BuzzFeed posts. And Richie’s doesn’t charge for extra hot sauce.

All according to (campus) plan
You know those cranes and bulldozers and huge piles of rubble you pass on your daily walk to class? The ones that make parts of campus look a little bit like the set of a postapocalyptic movie? Well, they’re all part of our plan. Our campus plan, that is. Temple actually has two of them, Visualize Temple and Verdant Temple, which describe the university’s long-term vision for campus. From protected bike lanes to Temple’s first quad, there’s lots of non-apocalyptic stuff on its way. So when you see that big excavator gnawing away at Barton Hall, close your eyes and imagine a beautiful, state-of-the-art new library in its place. And then open them and keep walking, because you look kind of weird standing there with your eyes shut.

Extra hot sauce, please
If you’re looking to kill a few minutes while waiting in line for a breakfast wrap at Richie’s, Temple has two more sponsored posts up on BuzzFeed. There’s nothing funny about midterms, but 16 Struggles Everyone Studying for Midterms Can Relate to will crack you up. And if you still haven’t chosen a major, find out which one you should choose based on your astrological sign.
I don’t know, what do you wanna do?
Now that it’s getting dark at 4 p.m., we wanna sit around in our PJs watching movies and eating chocolate-covered pretzels. But for the (free!) sneak preview of Spotlight, we’re going to put on what we refer to our “street clothes” (i.e., pants that are not pajama bottoms) and head to the Pearl Theater. The feature film, which stars Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo and the white-haired guy from Mad Men, is about the Boston Globe investigation that broke the story of priest sex abuse in Massachusetts. One of the members of the reporting team, played in the movie by Michael Keaton, will be on hand for a Q&A after the screening. Wednesday, Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m., Pearl Theater, 1600 N. Broad St.
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.
