The University

Temple University (Temple or TU) is a state-related research university located in the Cecil B. Moore neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. It was founded in 1884 by Baptist Minister Russell Conwell. In 1882, Conwell
came to Pennsylvania to lead the Grace Baptist Church while he began tutoring working class citizens late at night to
accommodate their work schedules. These students, later dubbed "night owls", were taught in the basement of Conwell's
Baptist Temple, hence the origin of the university's name and mascot. By 1907, the institution revised its institutional status
and was incorporated as a university.

As of 2017, more than 40,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students were enrolled in more than 500 academic degree programs offered at sites across the globe, including eight campuses across Pennsylvania, Rome, and Tokyo. Temple is among the world's largest providers of professional education preparing the largest body of professional practitioners in Pennsylvania (Source: Wikipedia)
