Guys & Girls: they are just normal college guys, t shirts , jeans, nothing rude, and nothing weird. everybody looks very kind and friendly, very dynamic and very positive.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The guys usually wear jeans and or sweats. The girls usually wear sweats. No one dresses up for class. There are plenty of things to do around campus which a lot of students participate in. The students really support the basketball and football team. The school spirit is very high.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There's great diversity. Everyone is average, and it also depends on your own opinion on what you like/don't like. The social life is noticeable everywhere and usually everyone can get along if you're not acting like a douche or stuck up.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: You're in a big city, so you see a little bit of everything. You find your people. But if you have a problem with certain people just BEING ALIVE (e.g. you're a racist or a homophobe) then go someplace more...traditional.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: A lot of girls on campus want to focus on school so they hookup...most students at temple are not fashionable so if you are you may feel overdressed at times...There are many interracial relationships at temple...

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Students at Temple find that—thanks to the large population of people from all over—it’s easy to find someone that sparks interest, at least for a few days. As far as anything serious—come on, it’s college! Live a little. Temple has a lot of potential for relationships, both short term and long. College, in general, is about hooking up and getting a feel for different people while you are still trying to fit into your own skin; Temple is no exception. As far as looks, beauty is something that’s found on the inside and that should be reason enough to find someone you can care for and call a girlfriend or boyfriend. Don’t believe that for a minute? For real, Temple has OK-looking people. There will be that one good-looking boy or girl that you can’t have because he or she has a mate, but there are a lot of single people on campus, and sometimes, looks aren’t really what matters—even if it is for one date.

Want some good news? Temple has a handful of students who are models and actors. They are attractive and educated, but be wary of others who also have their eyes on them. Girls in particular are definitely catty. As far as the overall social scene goes, joining clubs and organizations is the best way to meet people around campus. Dances, parties, and classes are also great places to find new people.

Social Scene

To make your experience a social one, join a club. There are so many organizations on campus. Getting involved allows you to meet people, find out things about yourself, and do something good for your school.
Hookups or Relationships?
Both. Whatever floats your boat. Temple students have something to offer everyone. You won't see a lot of couples holding hands on campus, but who knows what happens behind closed doors.
Dress Code
Because Temple University is so diverse and has the advantage of being in an urban city, students do everything from wear their pajamas to class to dress up like a fashion plate. Everyone looks to outdo someone else, but it's really all about your own personal style.
