Partying into the early morning hours, this Temple student and many others are finding new ways to make their weekends more exciting and entertaining — without leaving the campus.

    The enormous room was packed full with intense competitors, standing room only. As they gazed down intently, the tension was almost unbearable as they waited for their chance to scream.


    The University’s Free Food and Fun Fridays is one of the new ways students are finding exciting and entertaining things to do on the weekend.
    “What 21-year-old doesn’t want to play Bingo on a Friday night?” said junior Denesha James, a late-night Bingo veteran.
    Alternatives to late-night parties are beginning to pop up on college campuses nationwide, and this year Temple joined the list with its new alcohol-free programs.
