1 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are lots of parties, shootings, robberies, etc.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They drink a lot and do an occasional half-effort charity.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Mostly current junk food. Not many healthy choices.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The social work program is extensive. There are several clubs and facilities just for social work students.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload is heavy, but the curriculum is fulfilling.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It is on a central street and offers several modes of transportation. Shopping is near by and the sports teams are good.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Campus events are awesome and the students enjoy them. Some professors are like parents and will guide you through your college career. The athletic centers at Temple are amazing as we have basketball courts, tennis courts, swimming pools, and workout facilities. The SAC is the student activity center which is a common hangout for students.

5 College Junior

Academics: I am a Public Health major. There is a lot of work to do but it is very interesting. The major is intended for giving back to the community. There are many opportunities such as jobs and internships in this field.

Academics: Sometimes you have no options of what professor to choose because there is only one professor teaching a certain class.

4 College Junior

Majors: The Advertising department at Temple is great. Amazing professors, especially Dr. Marra, and a lot of opportunity to get real experience on campus (like Temple Ad Club or Diamond Edge Communications). Dana Saewitz sends out tons of emails about internships, and she's a great connection to have in interviews. I'm underwhelmed by some of my classmates in the department, but it's a great chance to rise up, stand out, and make a name for yourself before you even graduate.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I haven't noticed anything bad happening involving drugs. Students seem to be mature and being responsible. Temple tells students to contact a phone number in case of any serious issues occur with drugs or peer pressure. Temple makes sure students know it's alright to ask for help and to stay safe.

Transportation: Public transportation is easy to find. Buses and Trains take you where you want to go. For students who live farther away form the area, they may have to take more than one form of transportation. I live of campus but the train or bus get me there just before class.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms can vary but having seen most of the residence halls I'd say you won't be disappointed with your living area.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Temple University police seem to be everywhere and take student safety very serious. I've never felt scared on campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather on campus varies but it usually isn't too cold or too hot and getting to class is a relatively short walk.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is plenty of variety when it comes to dining on and around campus. With many unique food trucks that are relatively inexpensive on campus there are just as many restaurants off-campus that are quality without being over expensive.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The neighborhood adjacent to the university is usually considered to be not particularly safe. The same can be said of much of the City of Philadelphia. There are some nice sections of the city, but they are relatively expensive. It is probably better to live on campus if you can. The campus is usually considered to be safe.

Off-Campus Dining: Bensalem is one of the 100 best places to live, according to Money Magazine’s September issue.The best part of Bensalem is its people and its neighborhoods,” township council President Joe Knowles said. “We have location, history, shopping and activities, but our biggest asset we possess is the quantity and quality of people who care about their community. My family has been truly blessed to live in the Bensalem community for over 100 years.”

Party Scene: There are plenty of parties around during the weekend and there are plenty of police around to keep the campus safe.

5 College Student

Campus Food: The food around campus is wonderful. There is a dining hall that people may get sick of, but there is always trucks around and other food places around.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Temple University Campus Dining is amazing. Because the campus is so diverse, they surely have all kinds of food choices. In addition to providing a cafeteria, there are also food trucks where students are served with variety of cultural food and on the positive note, it is very delicious!

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Since Temple University is located in the city, public transportation is a wonderful resource to use. Literally, on almost every street, there are buses that runs all day long. Also, there is a subway that would take you anywhere even if it is 2 hours away from campus. However, the cost of these transportation varies. A monthly Septa pass would be roughly $80 while tokens would be roughly $1.50. In my opinion, the monthly pass is very useful.

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.
