Philadelphia has been experiencing some unprecedented high temperatures for the month of February this week, with highs in the mid sixties and low seventies. Temple students have been out on campus in full force in places like Beury Beach and Founder’s Garden.
The last time February was this warm was in 1874, when the high temperature was 75 degrees. This record could be broken on Thursday afternoon, as temperatures are expected to reach the mid-seventies.
Students have been enjoying lunch outside, studying on Beury Beach and playing sports on Geasey Field. They say Temple’s campus transforms into a happier place when the weather turns this warm.
Temple Update’s Hannah McComsey headed to the Bell Tower to get the scoop on how fellow Owls are spending their week in the warm weather.
