About Power Hour

The 1st event, “Power Hour”, is an initiative to help expose Philadelphia area HS students to the various majors offered at Temple, and the careers these majors can lead to. Power Hour will allow the Temple Faculty/Staff/Student/Alumni to share their stories with prospective students. They are looking to have a diverse group represented, with as many majors/professions represented as possible to help further expose high school students to careers beyond what they may already know or be considering.

The goal of #PowerHour is to:

  1. Increase students’ exposure to potential majors/careers by speaking with current students/alumni/faculty
  2. Allow students to attend a panel session presented by Alumni/Current Students (STEM, Business, Arts, Education, Communications) on their academic/career journey
  3. Engage with current TU students can on the steps needed to matriculate successfully and identify the correct major for them
