Being a Temple student, I find it really great that the university is very diverse. Students of all races and religions attend our school. It's been said that we have the most diverse group of college students of any other colleges. Much controversy and protest was brought to the University this passed Tuesday night when Geert Wilder was set to speak in Anderson Hall. From what I read, Temple was one of the only schools to invite him into speak. This radical politician's soul purpose is to abolish Muslim religion.
The students at temple in attendance of his conference weren't buying it. There were many boo's and some angered questions by the students. Although, Wilders answered all of them, his staff of very serious looking bodyguards tried to cut the questions short after someone in the first row asked a question that they didn't feel was appropriate. So much for free speech. The event brought all the major Philadelphia news outlets to the conference. Many disgruntled people were angered that they couldn't get in to the event. The paper had written that the event was open to all public when in reality, attendees needed to show Temple identification. Despite the communication breakdown, the turnout was still very good.
