inciteXchange is the annual event that takes place at Temple University where students can learn and share the ideas with the professional speakers from all different experiences and backgrounds. This event is organized by the Center for Design+Innovation at Fox School of Business and will happen on February 17th.
One of the many things that I find very interesting about this event is that students have the great opportunity to exchange ideas, thoughts, and any innovation to business experts. At the end, students’ ideas may be used for a good cause and help society. This event gives students a chance to express their creative thinking and also a great chance to show the business professional through your skills and talents in an intimate forum.
The topic for this year is “Fabric: seams, threads and bits”. Students can explore how to make the fabric, and where it is made. But it is not just about that; it is about understanding the culture and lifestyle of a certain group in society and coming with solutions to help society.
I strongly suggest all the students join this event because it can help you to understand the world outside college life, strengthen your teamwork, and critical thinking skills. Professor Youngjin Yoo is a special speaker for this event along with many other speakers from different companies. It is a great chance for students to expand the network.

Have you ever thought about going to that database class in Japan? Or how about presenting your group project in China? It sounds risky and a bit scary but the benefits of it are huge. Temple University has many programs that offer opportunities for students to explore not only themselves but also different cultures and environments. Temple even has its own branch campuses located in Japan and Rome. There are many other countries that have partnered with Temple so that students can study abroad all over the world. Ghana, Dublin, Mexico City, India, Paris, and Vietnam are just a few of the possible places.
As a business student, I strongly recommend that you think about studying aboard because of how diverse the world is now. If you do not want to travel too far, think about the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México(ITAM) in Mexico City, Mexico. This program provides courses to many business majors such as finance, accounting, economics, strategic management, and MIS. The ITAM program starts for the spring semester on the mid-January until May and fall semester starts from the early August to late December. For the most part you will need to some Spanish, but many students with varying skill levels have been able to successful complete their program. Most of the classes are taught in Spanish but will have the English text as well.
For me, one of the greatest blessings was being able to come to Philadelphia to study. Sure, it was hard and very difficult at first but it has made me who I am right now. Opportunities like this do not come too often and most likely will only be available while you are in college.

Walk In My Shoes Global Project assists children who are living in poor and needy areas; especially in Latin America and Africa. These children really need help and support from the outside sources since their family is so poor that can’t afford the medical bills or even a meal. We should always open our arms to support them in the hard times and now all Temple students need to come out and support with this great cause.
So here is the great chance for students to contribute to this cause, there will be an raffle event at Temple University with a chance to win the special prize of 2 Cadillac Grille Club Level Flyers seats worth $200 each. The game will be against the Phoenix Coyotes on November 17, 2011 @ 7:00 p.m. In order to have a chance to win the prize, you just need to pay only $5 for a raffle ticket.
Below is the information on the raffle event:
Place: Alter Hall Lobby
Date: Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011
Time: 9am-11am & 1pm-3pm
*The tickets will be selling until Friday, November 11th and a winner will be picked on this day.
I think this is a very meaningful event because all the proceeds will go to Walk In My Shoes Global Project to help the poor children. We all need to show our support and do this because this $5 dollar can save a life.

We all love our basketball teams and they have been doing amazing the past few years. We should all come out to show our support for them. We have all had stressful midterms recently; and this is the great chance for us to come, have fun, and relax before we go back and finish the semester. So come out to show your Temple Owl pride!
