Pitching in to help the community

Leaders from Temple and the community are collaborating to revitalize North Philly   
   It’s an old cliché that people know that they have found their life’s work when they relish waking up and going to the office each morning.
Jason Riley does one better: He looks forward to rolling out of bed on Saturdays to come to work.
   “When I first started at Temple about a year ago, I woke up early one weekend and realized that if you’re excited about getting up at 6 a.m. on a Saturday to go to work, you must love what you do,” said Riley, assistant director for community service, who is often side-by-side with students and administrators toiling in the streets of North Philadelphia.

This Week in Temple History
May 12, 1954

  On this date, legendary composer Irving Berlin visited campus to receive an honorary doctor of music degree at the annual music convocation. At the ceremony, Temple’s Concert Choir sang “Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor,” the inscription on the Statue of Liberty set to music by Berlin. Afterward, Berlin attended a luncheon in Mitten Hall during which he sang songs from the new movie White Christmas on his private piano brought from New York.
