If there’s one thing Temple University does right, it’s social media. (Okay, so that’s not the only thing—but you know what I mean.) Whether we’re facing our on-campus fears in funny ways or celebrating the successes of our football team, our tweets, posts and shares are almost always guaranteed to make us stop and stare.

Ready to see for yourself how cherry and white look on social media? Here are 17 of the most accurate Facebook and Twitter shout-outs from such Philly favorites as Temple University Confessions, @TempleMakeouts and @TU_Alert, along with other solid mentions and, yes, even Panic! At The Disco.

1. We take chances


2. We fall in love


3. We do the unthinkable

4. And we shatter expectations

5. Until Stella gets a lil’ too sassy

6. And reality sets in

7. But we’re used to setbacks

8. Because we’re rational thinkers

9. And we fight for what’s ours

10. Though we’re not afraid to return what isn’t

11. We live in a pretty city


12. One that’s prepared for anything

13. We’re hopeless romantics

14. Or, perhaps, just hopeless

15. But our mayor loves us

16. Our alumni love us

17. Even Panic! At The Disco loves us



We don’t win every game or lead perfect lives. However, Temple pride is real. And it’s something we all feel.
