5 College Freshman

Technology: The TECH Center is all of this and more. It's really an amazing place and I recommend that everyone makes a stop by there sooner or later.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: With all the different types of food from the trucks and student led organizations to experience and be involved with, it's hard not to make friends of a difference race or religion.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Come in as early as possible. It's easier to spot problems before they snowball into something that could leave you out of school.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The computers at Temple are very well equipped with everything a student might need. And having the Tech Center, people dont may not even need to use their own computer. However, it is busy during finals week.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Temple is a great school. Not only do our programs help every student find what they want to do, but there are plenty of place and organizations where people can meet each other and get involved within the school itself.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything on campus is in walking distance and there is septa transportation all around campus and throughout the city.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: the community around Temple university is very dangerous. there are always couple gun shooting happened around Temple, and sometimes the suspects even hide into our campus.

3 College Junior

Majors: It is a growing field where job opportunities are increasing. Some teachers are newer and don't really know how to teach well. Most teachers are good though. I like my major because I like to know about computers both hardware and software wise.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Their dining facilities are very good. Some vendors though are very bad. I mostly ate at the local outside vendors or food trucks.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Health wise it is good. Safety wise unless your on campus you are NOT safe. There are always Temple alerts going out saying somebody was mugged held up at knife/gun point or robberies.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: The facilities are good overall. Some of the older buildings need an update. Coming from a two year college that had smart boards in every classroom to a plain old classroom setting was different. Some times you can see leaks.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are many campus patrolmen but as soon as you get off campus there are many shady streets that could probably use some more officers

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms was difficult for me because I was not like most people on my Dorm floor. For other girls it seemed very easy to make friends and go out in large groups on the weekend. Most of the girls from my freshman year are still friends now. It will be easy for most people to get along with floor mates and make quick friends.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Since everywhere is pretty close, rain doesn't effect going to class. When most campuses get snow days, Temple does not.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Media Studies and Production is information rich but also a fun major with big personality professors. Many are very influential and help out students who seek it.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Classes intended for majors are acceptable, classes for general studies or intro classes are taught by grad students or phd candidates. These classes are often looked over by the instructors.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Temple if full of all different kinds of people. There are people from everywhere and anywhere with diverse religions and ethnicity. There are plenty of opportunities to see the different cultures that the students have with events that happen around campus. The students are very open and there is constant spreading and teachings about the diversity on campus, you never go a day without learning something new.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I switched out of my program(biology pre-med) for personal reasons . Such as the fear of not making to graduate school after because for me it was too difficult. But it is not bad program and nor do I not encourage someone to be part of it, because it is a program that if you are able to handle to definitely go for it and continue. The only concern about getting a job is first getting into graduate school and then getting job after that. I recommend if taking this program to have a back up plan.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting in to any major at Temple is easy, it's staying in the major that is the real challenge. You need to keep your gpa up at all times to stay in the school and major you are in otherwise you are kicked out of the school and need to find something else. Another challenge sometimes is getting the classes needed for your major they are taken to quickly and it turns out your are taking some classes just to fill up time.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Being a biology major at Temple University it is extremely difficult especially when it comes to the track you are on for graduate school. Each program is rigorous, and the professors expect so much more from you than you can handle at times. This keeps you alert but it does put pressure on you stopping you from doing well in other classes.The professors however are very smart and are willing to go above and beyond to help you learn and share their knowledge with you one on one. This major requires a lot of commitment.

3 College Junior

5 College Freshman

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Philadelphia weather - Balanced seasons - it is hot, cold, warm, cool, wet, and dry when you would expect it to be without any of them being extreme.

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.
