In The News


  This Week in Temple History
April 21, 1970

  The Temple University News reported that there was a brand-new course offered in Urban Planning Department, which taught students how to safely ride the subway. The University believed that since the Broad Street line had the important function of delivering thousands of commuters to campus, it could also serve as an educational tool.
