Overall Experience: Though the classes and teachers are engaging. I was promised that my degree would be able to be completed on Ambler campus, however, that was not true. They shipped me to main. If I had a chance I would've transferred to West Chest instead. I'm livid they lied to me about where I could complete my degree.

Overall Experience: My experience at Temple has been phenomenal overall! I'm in the Fox School of Business and I could not have asked for a better quality of education or professors! I feel once I graduate, I will be more than prepared to step out into the world. I like the fact Fox fosters independence, creativity, and innovation. They don't coddle you here at all and it really forces you to mature and find yourself. This is something I will be eternally grateful for. You will also never be bored at Temple either! There is always something going on and there's an abundance of clubs/extracurricular. There is literally something for everyone to get involved in. You also have the entire city of Philadelphia at your dispense as well!

Overall Experience: I love the people who attend Temple University they all possess an exceptionally unique take on their own lives and futures, and are willing to share that with the people around. To be part of such an interesting community is priceless, also everyone helps with the advancement of their peers, consistently providing wisdom to each other. That is why I would not want to change my decision of attending Temple University.

Overall Experience: Choosing a school to attend for my Freshman year of college was a very difficult decision to make. Although I was fortunate to make that decision, it no-less challenging. I was choosing between my top choice, which was very expensive, or a larger university closer to home. A year later, I am glad I chose the university that I did.

I love my classes, teachers, friends, and opportunities I have at my school! Coming from a small town to a large university has changed my view of the world and has given me everything I could hope for in a home away from home. I enjoy being immersed in my interests all day, every day. If I had to go through the process of choosing a school over again, I would pick this school in a heart-beat.

Overall Experience: I've had an absolutely incredible time at Temple. They have been extremely accomodating to my needs--I had to go on medical leave at the end of my second semester and they refunded everything from that point forward. The school and the city of Philadelphia offer endless opportunities and opened my eyes to the world around me. The honors program has been a wonderful resource for advice and guidance on classes and life in general. All of my professors (I've taken only honors classes so far) have been excellent--they were handpicked by the head of honors.

I feel like Temple is moving in the right direction and always looking to improve. I feel valued as an individual and I feel like I am both challenged and supported as I seek to reach my full potential.

Overall Experience: Temple University is great because it's everything I expected and more. The classes do a really good job at preparing me for my major and the teachers are great. There is always something to do around the campus area and it's a great place to meet great people.

Overall Experience: Temple University is a large school with many opportunities offered to students. They also provide many resources to their students such as the tech center for online work and laboratories for experiments. These resources allow students to ease with success without any pain at all towards themselves as it is convenient to venture around campus to these resources.

Overall Experience: I love the opportunity Temple provides with finding internships and jobs close to school and close to home. There's always a way I can get a head start in my career while still in school as well as many opportunities to learn.

Overall Experience: Temple University strives for excellence and diversity in an urban setting. Classes are straightforward, the city is a 5 minute subway ride away, and the connections you make are great.

Overall Experience: Temple University has so much to offer and it is easy to obtain those opportunities. Waiting to start my freshman year I was very nervous about my choice and wasn't sure I would like my experience. I was very wrong as the campus is very welcoming and always exciting with clubs, events, the facilities, and the student body. The city is right down the block and offers a whole new world aside from college life. I would highly recommend Temple University to other students looking for the right college fit.

Overall Experience: I get to live in the middle of the city without actually feeling like I'm in the city while I'm on campus, which is a big plus to me. I think Temple is unique because if you just go there for a semester, you can feel how much the student body cares about the school and how proud people are to go to Temple. I've never met a person who went to Temple that regretted it and I think that has a lot to do with the kind of people the university attracts. Everyone is really motivated and they come from all types of backgrounds which I think strengthens the bond between the students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, Temple has its ups and downs, but students seem to love it all the same. On the downside, there can be some head-butts with tyrannical teachers, unfriendly cafeteria workers, and the always-frustrating financial aid office. Housing can cause an enormous hassle, and those commuting have to battle with parking or public transportation. Some people don’t feel as though they are prepared for the real world once they leave campus, but others say it’s been an incredible learning experience. Those students that love their experience at Temple all have their own reasons. Some love the atmosphere and found it to be a lot of fun. Others found it to be a great place to grow up and discover themselves. Lots of students take away more from living in a big city than they do from the University. But one thing it seems most students agree on is that the people at Temple University are what really make it a worthwhile experience.

In general, students coming to Temple have big expectations, from both the school and the city. Those that graduate either feel that Temple met their expectations, or if it didn’t, then it was their own fault for not pursuing more opportunities while they were there. Most students feel that Temple provides them with the opportunities that make their college experiences excellent—as long as they are willing to make use of them.
