Donate your old cell phone

Throughout the spring semester, Recreation Services is collecting outdated, unused and old cell phones at the Student Pavilion and IBC Student Recreation Center.

Donated phones are refurbished and distributed to victims of domestic violence as lifelines in emergency situations through the Wireless Foundation.

Super Bowl XXXIX

Dean of Students and Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Ainsley Carry has released a memo asking Temple students to bear the following in mind during this week’s Super Bowl celebrations:

• Citywide and statewide celebrations may follow an Eagles victory in the Super Bowl; therefore, there will be ample opportunities for us to celebrate responsibly.
• You are from a proud tradition of Temple University students who are known for community service, civility and respect for their neighbors and one another.
• Win or lose, the University will be open and operate on a normal schedule Monday, Feb. 7.
• You are a leader in this community, state and nation. Act responsibly while you have fun.
• There will be ample opportunities for Temple students to enjoy the game. Super Bowl gatherings will be taking place at various residence halls and in the Owl Cove.

We need everyone’s help in assuring that the Temple community, including all of our students and their neighbors enjoy this moment in our city’s history. Please report your concerns to the Office of the Dean of Students (204-7188) or Campus Safety (204-1234).

Securitas employees from Temple provide help at inauguration

Five Securitas Security Services USA employees who work at Temple were among those who provided logistical support and security services to the inauguration of President Bush in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 20.

They were Charles Cooper and Cynthia Suber, supervisors at the Health Sciences Center; Doreen Smith and Bernadine Sissoko, who work at the Liacouras Center garage; and Velda Jackson, who works at parking lot No. 9.

Securitas, which has provided uniformed parking attendants and cashier services to Temple for more than 20 years, was the only private security company selected to provide support to the inauguration.
