Welcome Class of 2015, and all Temple Owls across the web. My name is Julian Otis (Class of 2013) and I will be one of your guides to getting the inside scoop on what’s HOT and COOL in Philadelphia. But I’m just not reporting on interesting places and events, I actually want YOU to get out there and visit them too. Temple University and the GenEd Program have combined to provide PEX passes to all incoming students so that you can explore Philadelphia’s cultural offerings at a discounted price. If you think I’m joking I’ll give you an example. Last year I used my PEX pass to buy an EZseatU membership from The Philadelphia Orchestra. I paid $25 to get unlimited access to orchestra concerts throughout the entire year! Your PEX pass will give you access to art, music, museums, theater, and other cultural activities in the Philadelphia area. Here is where I come in. As your PEX Pass Cultural Correspondent I’ll prevue interesting activities on a weekly basis and give you my recommendations on what I think are events too worthwhile to miss. After you’ve visited a venue, comment on my blog and let other students know how you liked the event. Hold on tight, I’ll keep you in the know. Until the next event, this is your PEX Pass Cultural Correspondent, Julian Otis signing off.
UPDATE: College Night at The Orchestra is October 6th. It a free concert for area college students and believe me it is a lot of fun.
