Temple University graduates largest class at 125th commencement
KYW News Radio
Today was a big day for thousands of Temple students. University spokesman Ray Betzner says this is the biggest graduating class that Temple’s ever had. And he says a large graduating class is good for the city. “One of the things we’ve discovered is that students come to Temple because they want to be part of Philadelphia. And if they can find jobs in the area, even if they’re not from Philly, they want to stay here. So we’re gaining brains.” And the school is working to accommodate all those brains. “Temple is building the largest residential complex in its history. We’re going to have almost 1,300 beds when it’s done and open next year,” said Betzner.
