When Tamron Hall, Temple alumna and co-host of NBC’s Today, visited a haunted house in New Jersey, she screamed so much that she hurt herself—a deep muscle tear. Letting out a yelp is part of the normal response to fear, said educational psychologist Frank Farley of Temple’s College of Education. “Screams have multiple features. They can be a signal for help; they can be an expression of emotion,” he said. “Screaming is one form of expressing fear. … [It’s] what we do in social situations that have scary qualities.” So why do people seek out haunted houses and horror movies? “It is scary, but it’s a safe thrill,” Farley said.

Dean Gregory Anderson

President Neil D. Theobald added that Temple is committed to providing access for talented and motivated students of all backgrounds. “By giving students more choices, we open doors to more first-generation students and those from underserved communities whose enormous academic promise may be overlooked by conventional measures of achievement,” he said.
