corenet flyer

On Tuesday, November 18th, from 5:30-7:30, the Temple Real Estate Organization is holding a panel discussion in the Undergraduate Commons (Egg) with top executives in Philadelphia corporate real estate. Representatives from Comcast, TD Bank, SAP, GlaxoSmithKline, and Campbell Soup will be speaking about their roles in the real estate divisions of their companies.

This is a great networking opportunity for finance and real estate majors as well as anyone interested in real estate as a profession. This is also a great opportunity for students to get exposure to an industry which is often looked over as a career choice.

Attached is a flyer for the event. All majors are invited and encouraged to attend.

Things I Wish I Knew When I Started at Temple

Top Ten Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Temple…
(Advice from our Peer Advisors)

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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/).
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6.  RATEMYPROFESSORS.com – love this!
  7. 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.
  8. Dress for success– a suit is definitely a MUST, especially for Fox students.
  9. 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”.
  10. 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!!
