Student Profiles

Adhya Gowda '23

Lincolnshire, Illinois

Hello!! My name is Adhya (she/her) and I'm a junior majoring in psychology with minors in cognitive neuroscience and healthcare management. I’m from Lincolnshire, IL, a suburb close to Chicago, so Philly is pretty far from home but I love it! You can see that I have somewhat of a "too-much gene" as I try to be as involved on campus as possible. I am a part of LEADS, an organization that encourages interest in science by doing experiments after school in the Temple area. I am also a HEART Peer Educator, a research assistant at the Social and Affective Neuroscience Lab, a Conversation Partner at the Student Success Center, a sxster of Delta Kappa Delta Sorority, Inc., and a part of Psychology Majors Association as well as the Honors Admissions and Transitions Team (HATT)! Outside of all this I love spending time with friends just hanging out in the city, cooking, and being generally crafty. I am also a huge fan of competition reality tv and the show Big Brother is my favorite. Feel free to email me at with any questions about Temple Honors/college in general or just to chat!
