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.

A new article published by Temple University Communications says the school’s Owl Ambassadors serve as a driving force for enrollment and the city’s economy.

The story connects “Temple’s elite corps of 37 tour guides” to the rapidly-increasing number of guests visiting the university in North Philadelphia.

If those visiting students enroll at Temple, the potential money they will spend within the city limits, not including tuition, contributes to Philadelphia’s $2.4 billion economy, according to the article.
