After Temple University
- Very Good1701
My experience has been mostly positive. Temple University is a large public university that was founded as a night school to advance higher educational wants and needs of the average middle class working man or woman of non-traditional age. It has lots of good apples and bad apples, a large majority of its faculty and staff forget that their salary is paid indirectly by the student's tuition. The culture must from the bottom to the top, it must embody a student centered culture and that without the student the university is nothing more than a mere collection of bricks, mortar, and glass.

As a freshman this year, I have so far loved everything about Temple. It is a great school with so many opportunities and great people. Everyone is very serious with their academics and trying to reach their goals. Mostly everyone loves going to parties. You could probably find a party any day of the week. The Friday and Saturday parties are great and get super hyped, and some times out of control. Its great and I would recommend any prospective students to definitely come to Temple.

Temple is a very unique school. Located in the northern half of Philadelphia, the offerings of the city are unparalleled. There is so much to explore and almost anything you could possibly want to do is just a subway ride away. The university itself is also quite nice. Temple has, for several years now, been constantly upgrading, renovating, and creating new buildings. The TECH Center is the largest computer lab of its kind in the country. Pearson and McGongile halls offer swimming pools, basketball and volleyball courts, boxing gyms, and martial arts clubs. Temple has a very strong international relationship with foreign universities and its own branch campuses. Many students are studying here from various countries and the study abroad program is extremely strong, with Temple's own campuses located in Rome and Tokyo. There are unlimited possibilities just waiting to be claimed and Temple offers something for every student.
