When members of the Class of 2017 moved into Mitchell and Hilarie Morgan Residential and Dining Complex in fall 2013, they helped usher in a new era for living and learning at Temple University.

Moore Avenue represents the future of residential life at a university that little more than a decade ago was known primarily as a commuter school.
Temple University held a special ceremony to honor this year's student recipients of the 20/20 Scholarship.

Grants ranging from $2,000 to $5,000 per student are awarded to undergraduates from the Delaware Valley area in good academic standing whose financial need cannot be met by other aid programs.
Opened this week, the Fitness Mezzanine at Pearson-McGonigle Hall offers students and employees unique workout options highlighted by panoramic views from large windows overlooking North Broad Street.

Operated by University Dining Services, the shop will be open weekdays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on evenings and weekends when women’s basketball games are played in McGonigle Hall.
At a ceremony yesterday attended by Board of Trustees members, senior officials and invited guests, the university honored Mitchell Morgan and his wife Hilarie by naming Temple’s new residence hall under construction at Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue in their honor.
