Temple University Horticulture major Katie Roberts’ educational career began at Temple Ambler as many other journeys do. It started with a road trip. “I was a business major for one and a half years but I knew early on that simply wasn’t what I was meant to do with my life. I had a professor in Florida who was teaching a horticulture course and I simply fell in love with the program — his passion for the subject inspired me. It wasn’t long before I discovered Temple’s Horticulture program and the Ambler Campus,” said Roberts, 21, who transferred to Temple from Florida Southern College in spring 2018.
Newly minted Temple Ambler Owl Heather Earlin has a specific motivation for pursuing her degree in Psychology. “When I look at things from a psychological standpoint, the world makes much more sense to me,” she said. “I can analyze why people do what they do and why they say certain things or chose to approach situations the way they do. It gives me a better understanding of the world around me.”
