Louis Pera '17

Egg Harbor Township, NJ

Hi guys! My name is Louis Pera and I'm a senior Spanish and Italian double major and Economics and Political Science double minor with plans to start law school in the fall. Being born and raised in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey (just outside of Ocean City!), I was ready to start my college experience in Philadelphia. Other than being involved in the Honors community, I also work at the Academic Resource Center, which is an advising office for students without a major outside of any school or college. During my junior year, I was able to study abroad for two consecutive semesters at Temple Rome and Temple Spain where I was really able to put my language and cultural skills to the test. In my free time I love going to restaurants throughout the city and trying new foods, so feel free to ask me if you have any questions about studying abroad, language programs at Temple, or the Philly food scene!
