The Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Temple University held its first night of ‘Meet the Owls’ sessions Wednesday night.

Nearly 100 candidates came to the initial group interview for a chance at their own red polo and an opportunity to be named one of Temple’s next Owl Ambassadors.

Each applicant introduced themselves to the group of future Owls and current tour guides, before teaming up for a short group skit focused around life as a student at Temple.

From here, selected candidates are invited back for a personal interview. The final step in the selection process allows applicants to show their skills at one of the university’s admitted student events.

A second ‘Meet the Owls’ session is scheduled for Friday night at the Welcome Center on Main Campus.

El Vez: A Taste of Mexico in Center City February 1, 2012

Fresh guacamole and one of the city’s best margaritas? Yes, please!

El Vez, 121 S. 13th St., offers diners a unique dining experience that only local restaurateur Stephen Starr could pull off. From the food to the decor, El Vez transports guests into a world of Mexican cuisine.

For starters, this Mexican eatery offers seven different guac options. Seven! All made fresh and served in a traditional molcajete or as a sampler platter.

When it comes to the main course, the portions are just right. Be sure to pick up a few of the side options to spice up your meal. I recommend the grilled corn on the cob with lime and queso fresco or the creamy poblano corn rice. Yum!

So, go and explore! The food’s great and the drinks are too. Plus, the guest service at the Center City establishment is beyond extraordinary.

Oh, El Vez also offers a photo booth! Three bucks to get some a strip of retro, black-and-white photos. Over the weekend, a group of friends and family went for Abby’s Birthday and the waitstaff offered to have the photo booth images screen printed onto an El Vez t-shirt. How cool?
