Top Ten Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Temple…
(Advice from our Peer Advisors)
- Utilize the many resources available to you- utilize the Teaching Assistant’s (TA’s) and the Tutoring Center/ Writing Center. The TECH Center is an awesome resource too. If you need viruses taken off your computer, they do it for FREE.
- Take control of your education and plan ahead- Temple is a HUGE university. Visit offices like Student Financial Services and Advising during off-peak hours (hint: peak hours are typically during priority registration and the first two weeks of each semester. Check out the Academic Calendar for dates: http://www.temple.edu/registrar/documents/calendars/). Also, make friends with upperclassmen to help you navigate the university.
- Get involved in activities and clubs as soon as possible- take advantage of every opportunity (hint: consider joining an SPO: http://www.fox.temple.edu/org/).
- Take advantage of your student status- there are so many discounts that you can receive in the Philadelphia area just by having your Temple ID. SWEET!
- Check out other venues for books- use eBay, Amazon, book.ly or local bookstores in the Philadelphia area. College bookstores can be a rip off so renting textbooks or buying books from upperclassmen tend to be a heck of a lot cheaper.
- RATEMYPROFESSORS.com – love this!
- Center City is not hard or expensive to get to- if you’re losing your mind take a stroll down to Rittenhouse to relax. Also, become familiar with public transportation and if you have a car on campus, pay to have it in a secure lot.
- Dress for success- a suit is definitely a MUST, especially for Fox students.
- Know where to eat- food trucks are amazing and cheap (especially the crepe truck by Tyler). Sodexo and the Fresh Grocer are expensive for what they offer. The SAC is a little better than J&H Cafeteria because it offers smaller portions to help cut down on the “freshman 15”.
- Things will not be perfect your first semester- your schedule may not be how you want it to be and you may not have the ideal roommate. You may not love every class you have to take or enjoy every professor, but you’re in college and if you want to accomplish your goals, you have to learn how to cope. You can do it- we all did!!

Do Ties Really Bind?
The Effect of Technological & Relational Networks on Consensus Formation in Multi-partner Alliances
The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
Multi-firm alliances that develop technology standards are fast emerging as a preferred way of coordinating industry-wide technological change. However, little is known about the tensions underlying coordination within these expansive organizational arrangements as they attempt to forge common ground between firms with heterogeneous and potentially divergent capabilities. In this paper, I take a first step toward explicating such tensions by exploring firm-level factors that affect progress towards a shared standard. My arguments build upon strategic networks theory and I highlight how the multiplex nature of inter-organizational relationships has a bearing on firms’ conduct within standards committees. I study the influence of two important relationships – technological knowledge linkages and strategic alliance ties – on the voting behavior of 132 firms over a 14-year period in an information technology standards committee. I find that more centrally positioned firms in the technological network exhibit lower opposition to the standard as their knowledge is more foundational for developing the standard and resolving conflicts. In contrast, I find that firms in more central positions in the strategic alliance network are more likely to contest the standard – such positions already endow the firms with advantageous complementary capabilities that they can continue to exploit without agreeing to the technological change imminent with a shared standard. Thus, the influence of strategic network resources on coordination in a multi-firm setting differs depending upon the type of inter-organizational tie considered. Furthermore, when these relationships are considered jointly, centrality in the technological network moderates the opposing effect of centrality in the alliance network – firms that possess superior resources in both networks stand to benefit more from a shared standard, and thus exhibit a higher support for its coordination.
