Main Campus construction update

     Projects to create more space for entertainment, meeting  
Creating more space takes time. It also takes up space. Anyone walking through the heart of the Main Campus has probably had to take a detour or two — off the sidewalk and into the street in the closed-off block of 13th Street, or through the pedestrian corridor on Liacouras Walk just north of Montgomery Avenue.
    Two major construction projects now under way — the addition to the Student Center and the renovation of the townhouses in the 1800 block of Liacouras Walk — will soon make those minor inconveniences a distant memory when they are completed in the fall, providing much-needed additional space and enhanced facilities for the University’s burgeoning campus community.

This Week in Temple History
January 20, 1973

   A group of Temple folk dancers added an international touch to one of President Nixon’s Inaugural Balls in Washington, D.C. The Janosik Dancers were directed by Morley Leyton, an assistant professor of biometrics in the School of Medicine who taught folk dancing classes in the department of health, physical education and recreation. The group was selected to appear at the ball by the Smithsonian Institution after having won a number of awards at the National Polish Arts Festival in Rzeszow, Poland.
