2016 Fall Tamlyn Kurata Temple Japan

Welcome to The Parliament

On August 29th, classes officially started at Temple University Japan. With the opening of the new school year also came the opening of the new student lounge: The Parliament. Why is it called The Parliament? Hold that thought for a little bit.

So, have you guessed why the new lounge is called The Parliament? A group of owls is called a parliament, and the new lounge is a place where all of Temple’s owls come to gather.
