On a recent Tuesday afternoon at Raven Hub learning space, second-year students Corinn Mabry and Sofia Corcoran sat amid a group of 15 students to discuss the lofty challenge they’ve set before themselves. The duo is at the helm of a new student club dedicated to bringing a radio station (call letters: WPHU) back to Thomas Jefferson University. In this episode of the Nexus Podcast, Mabry, Corcoran and the club advisor discuss the lofty goal of bringing campus radio back to Jefferson. We also dive into the history of campus radio dating back decades to Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science’s WTEX.

When the University's Institute for Smart and Healthy Cities launched in January 2021, it marked the start of a multi-college effort to advance the development of the urban environment through collaboration across the architecture, design, engineering, health and science disciplines. In April, the Institute announced the first round of Smart & Healthy Cities Fellowship Grants, which represent single-year seed funding to support transdisciplinary research on a variety of topics. For this episode of The Nexus Podcast, we spoke to Institute leadership, as well as several grant recipients, to discuss how this mission represents the cross-disciplinary opportunities brought about by the 2017 merger of two distinguished universities.   SOCIAL CHANNELS: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JeffersonUniv/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/JeffersonUniv Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jeffersonuniv/?hl=en TikTok: @_jeffersonuniv_ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/JeffersonUniv LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/school/thomas-jefferson-university

When people visit the University’s East Falls campus on tours, they hear about it from the RAMbassadors. When students talk amongst themselves, the topic comes up. When alumni look back on their time at the University, it's amongst the most common memories. We’re talking, of course, about Chicken Finger Thursday, which is the mouth-wateringly popular highlight of the culinary schedule. For this episode of the Nexus Podcast, we compiled an oral history of the decade-plus-old dining-hall event, speaking with people on both sides of the counter about what makes Chicken Finger Thursday so special. We apologize in advance for any ensuing hunger pangs.

For more than 20 years, the Thomas Jefferson University’s annual fashion show was the “hot-ticket” event for the fashion-design program. Mirroring industry trends, the end-of-year showcase has evolved into a Fashion Design Film that highlights students’ design processes, inspirations and backstories. We speak with program director Farai Simoyi, dean Michael Leonard and a pair of students who discuss how this transition gives graduates a leg-up in an evolving future of work environment.

At Thomas Jefferson University, a team of industrial-design students have teams up with the Center for Autism and Neurodiversity in an effort to create neurodiverse friendly chairs for the Specialty Care Pavilion.
