3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing is fine, but I just feel that it is a little overpriced.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics scene is on the rise, especially after this football season. It will be interesting to see if the team can consistently be a top 25 program for the next few years. On the intramural side of things, there are a lot of options to play casually or join club sports.

Overall Experience: Temple has many assets that make it a great choice. It is always looking to improve its facilities. We are getting a new library in two or three years. The athletics are exciting, especially this season after the football team had one of its best seasons since the 1970s. Lastly, the location in Philadelphia means that there is always something to do outside of class. It is almost impossible to be bored between being in the city and all of the campus organizations.

Overall Experience: I haven't looked into it much. My goal is simply to get a degree, and that is all.

Overall Experience: Overall, I have not enjoyed my experience at this school and am sincerely looking forward to graduating. There were classes I really wanted to take, but sometimes the professors are not professional at all, whether that be reflected in their grading or their treatment of students they don't like. There was a lot of favouritism, and I just don't like to engage in that kind of thing for the sake of a grade. Overall, it reminds me of an expensive high school, and as said, I just want to get my degree and get more real-world experience.

Health & Safety: It's Japan, so I feel safe in that sense. Crime here is low. But of course it's important to be careful regardless.

Overall Experience: There are some departments that have been incredibly friendly and helpful, but the departments I have to see the most (with the exception of a few) are most often the departments that are the worst to work with. They are impatient and do not want to deal with individual student's needs. It's actually frustrating to have to go down to them with an issue when I already know they don't want to work on it.

Athletics: We essentially don't have any athletics here, but this is Temple Japan campus, which is just one building and a small school.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: As said before, some grading policies with certain teachers are very strange. (For example, for group projects, one teacher insists routinely that he will only give one group of students in the class an A. All the other groups' work, whether of equal quality or not, will receive a lower grade.) Grading tends to be inconsistent, and at some points downright strange or debatable. However, it is difficult to wish to appeal unfair grading because the teacher is almost always viewed as "right" at the school, and there is the risk that the teacher will also punish the student in future for having questioned the grading. There have been a variety of grading methods at Temple Japan, and only some seem "normal". On top of this, for some classes, teachers show up late or sometimes not at all. Things feel generally a little too laidback or unprofessional at points.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: There don't seem to be many perks to being an alumnus, unfortunately, and job prospects are not always easily in reach or clear.

Health & Safety: The school doesn't feel seriously dangerous in any way, but since it is only one building with no campus, it is very likely that any crimes would happen off-campus.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: There is no proper campus for Temple Japan, as the school exists within just one building, which is also shared with a Japanese company. Housing for the school is quite far from the building itself, but I do not and have not lived in the campus housing, so I cannot properly judge it. I can only say that the dormitories are quite far.

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life at Temple Japan.

Overall Experience: It's more of a safety school at this point. It was one of my options, and I chose to take it. But I have not felt satisfied with a lot of aspects of the school, including class material, grading policies, and the overall school experience. Even though I did have the school listed as a safety option only, I still went in with high hopes for what I could achieve there. I feel like a lot of those hopes were dashed because the school does not have enough resources and seems more to be trying to just "get by" than actually focus on and assist students. I am also among a few students who have been verbally abused by the financial aid advisor at the school for "being extra trouble" for being in need of financial aid. Such experiences have left a sour taste at the school, on top of the general disappointment while attending.

Athletics: At the Temple Japan campus, there aren't really any active sports teams or events. This is probably because there is no actual place to practice! (Temple Japan shares a single building with a Japanese company and has no actual campus.) It's really a shame, actually.

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.
