Student Profiles

Sophia Calabrese '24

Palatine, Illinois

Hi everyone! My name is Sophia (she/her) and I’m a second year student majoring in Sociology and Global Studies and minoring in Spanish. I’m from the suburbs of Chicago which made me interested in attending an urban school. What drew me in most was the vibrate campus atmosphere and its diverse community. Temple Honors was the cherry on top (pun very much intended) to Temple because of the close-knit community it provides. Philadelphia become a home and provides a million and one places to discover and enjoy. I am a big foodie so if you like eating out feel free to ask for recommendations! I am an undergraduate research for a joint sociological study of Climate Change through Temple University and Rice University. This semester I am studying abroad through Temple’s Spain program so if you are interested in this I’d love to talk more about it! Feel free to email me about anything from questions about Temple Study abroad to questions about Sociology, Global Studies, Spanish to food recommendations in the city!
