Nursing Major

Justine Jones was the recipient of the new Independence Foundation Healthcare Scholars Pipeline Program scholarship, which is designed to help students of color pursue a nursing degree. She is now one step closer to her dream of being a trauma nurse and giving back to her community.

“I chose nursing so that I can make a difference in people’s lives. I believe that you can change a person’s view on life during one encounter.”

Bioengineering Major

While she was a student at Temple, Bioengineering Major Morgan Rollins landed an internship at Johnson & Johnson, a leading multinational healthcare company, with the help of a fellow Owl.

“People apply to Johnson & Johnson and don’t hear back because they’re such a coveted company. But after reaching out to a fellow bioengineering grad from Temple, one thing led to another, and he helped create an opening for an internship designed specifically for me at Johnson & Johnson.”

Graphic and Interactive Design Major with Entrepreneurial Studies

In her design class, Emma Coath worked directly with alumni-owned Victory Brewing Company to design real packaging for a real product.

In the class, the students would meet with the client to discuss the project, conduct research, develop concepts and present their work, exactly how it would go in the professional world.

“I’ve learned a lot about being an artist, but also about being financially stable in the future.”
