Owl Ambassadors help make Temple shine

    Owl Ambassadors must have their Temple trivia ready at the drop of a hat.
How many books are in Paley Library? How many undergraduate majors are offered at Temple?
    They’ve mastered just about everything there is to know about the University. The trivia isn’t these ambassadors’ only skill — they do more than just spout facts that anyone could look up in the University view book.
    You’ve seen the Owl Ambassadors: 30 freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior students in Temple-cherry hoodies who give campus tours to visitors and high school students thinking about coming here. [more]

Owl Ambassadors (above, in the new Welcome Center) put their Temple knowledge to the test as they tell prospective students and their families about the advantages of choosing Temple over other universities. The Owl Ambassadors are student workers who give campus tours to visitors and high school students who are thinking about attending Temple.
