SCAT receives funding
Since December, Temple’s School of Communication and Theater has received two monetary gifts for its atrium renovations. Gerry Lensfest donated $1.5 million in December and the Annenbergs sent $1 million last month. The new atrium, to include a cyber café and screening/projection facility, will begin construction this summer.
Other gifts and awards totaling $370,410 will be used to fund the New Media program. Audio studios will be re-equipped, and audio equipment will be replaced in Tomlinson and Randall Theaters. Digital post-production centers are to be upgraded as well as computers and the graphics lab, among others.
Free football tix next semester
With Temple’s Football program in limbo with the Big East, Temple’s Athletics department will start a student season ticket registration drive for the 2001 season.
Tickets will be distributed through GAF funds at no extra charge to students. Hopes are to increase the student body’s support of the football program. Ticket registration forms can be picked up from a residence hall RA or RD, the ticket office in the Liacouras Center and the Ambler office of Student Life.
