4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are several bus lines and subway options on or near campus and the the school shuttle will take you to where you need to get.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The student center is great for hanging out with a couple of food choices to choose from. Morgan hall has the best choices while there are other places nearby. There is always something to get involved with on campus with a lot of clubs and activities to choose from. There are a couple gyms students can choose from with zumba, yoga, and dance classes available.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather isn't really a big issue since the school is located basically in the middle of a neighborhood.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Temple is really big on athletics, the students are really involved in supporting the teams and there is great team and school spirit!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life is available for students who are interested and they throw parties sometimes but most non-Greek students either go for the parties or just don't care. It's pretty peaceful between the students who are in Greek Life and students who are not.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking around Temple's area is tough if you don't park in the parking garages. It's free but you'll be parking in residential areas and it's not a guarantee that your car will be fine when you get back.

Transportation: Temple has its own subway stop, train stop, and multiple bus stops that are all run by Septa's public transportation system. They also provide a free shuttle to get to and from multiple campuses that runs every weekday about every hour from 7 am - 6:30 pm. On top of this, they have smaller shuttle buses that run from 5:30 pm - 6 am, 7 days a week in order to ensure the transportation safety of students who live off campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Temple is not a generally safe area but they really try to provide a safe atmosphere for students and it works. Temple Police are everywhere and it is very unlikely for something to happen on campus.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The Tech Center Computer Lab is one of the nicest I've ever seen at any university and there are tons of computers there. The only time it gets crowded is during finals week. There are also smaller computer labs all around campus in the buildings that students can freely use.

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.
