Wikipedia defines inspiration (from the Latin inspirare, meaning “to breathe into”) as “an unconscious burst of creativity in a literary, musical, or other artistic endeavor.” The thing about inspiration is that it doesn’t occur in a vacuum; instead, you must go out and find it.
To that end, here at Temple you have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of experiences through programs and activities that complement and support your artistic endeavors. From world-class orchestral concerts at the Temple Performing Arts Center, to dance and theater performances at the Connelly and Tomlinson Theaters, to sporting events and popular entertainment that provide citywide excitement at the Liacouras Center, Temple always has something going on. Clubs, sports teams, honor societies, Greek life, and volunteer service organizations all thrive on campus and welcome the participation of Tyler students.
When you add the diverse activities in the City of Philadelphia, along with the proximity to both New York City—arguably the art capital of the United States—and Washington DC—with its collection of art that is mostly free and open to the public—and you can find a wealth of extra-curricular inspiration right at your doorstep.
