Major: Communication and Social Influence
Exp. Graduation Date: December 2019

Hey future Owl! My name is Kat and I can't wait to meet you! Temple was everything I was looking for in a university: a diverse student body on a campus bursting with opportunities in a city where I could challenge myself to learn more both in and out of the classroom. I'm originally from Massachusetts, but I've come to love everything about Philly (even an Eagles game) in the past few years. I sincerely believe that choosing Klein College was the best choice I ever made! Our students are so open, accepting, and ambitious and our professors are always ready to offer any advice. Klein will push you to learn more about yourself, get involved, and understand the world around you in your time here.

 

Tara Doll
Major: Journalism
Exp. Graduation Date: May 2021

Hello everyone! My name is Tara Doll and I am a writer for TheTemple News. I am a Philadelphia native and a proud Temple Owl! Choosing Temple was an easy decision for me once I attended my first open house in fall 2016. I learned so much from all of the student ambassadors and professors in Klein College, and I knew I wanted to make Temple my new home for the next four years. Temple’s campus is a quick subway ride into Center City, which is bursting with culture, life, and so many job opportunities in Philadelphia’s huge media market. The journalism program in Klein is excellent and gives you plenty of hands- on, real-life field experience in all different aspects of the media industry. Through the journalism program and its courses, you are molded into an experienced, versatile journalist in areas such as writing, photography, videography, design, and more. I can’t wait to meet all of you future Owls and see what you will make out of your years at Temple University!

I'm also a producer of Lo Ultimo, our 15-minute weekly Spanish newscast. If you're interested in living on Temple's beautiful campus, I'm also work as a Resident Assistant in the dorms; I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about that!

Hi there! My name is Imyah Sommerville, or Myah for short, and I’m a transfer student here at Klein College. Before attending Temple, I spent the past two years at the Community College of Philadelphia where I graduated with an Associate of Arts in Communication Studies. My first visits to Klein and interactions with faculty members were outstanding. I was able to decide on a major in Advertising easily thanks to all the insightful information everyone provided. I truly feel at home here at Klein College as a transfer because of the incredible support I’ve continuously received from day one. I’m super excited to be an Ambassador for Klein College so I can share more of my story and hear all of yours! Just like me, I know you’ll find your unique place here at Klein and Temple as a whole!

Hey! My name is Nic Uff! I chose Temple because of the endless amount of opportunities made available to me, even as a first year student. Besides being a Klein College student ambassador, I am a studio worker, working to help manage all of the studio facilities at Klein, and last semester even had the opportunity to co-produce “Update Now”, a 90 second daily news brief show that is under the umbrella of Temple Update. I also volunteer for Temple Update, our Emmy-winning weekly newscast that is broadcast live on TUTV. When I’m not in Annenberg Hall, you may find me at one of my favorite food trucks or even flying my drone around campus gathering content for my latest project. I am extremely proud of the things we produce at Klein College and I am proud to be a Temple Owl!
