4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've been lucky enough to have had professors that legitimately care about the work they are doing. I have always felt that they are passionate about transferring their love of a subject to their students.

Overall Experience: I think a degree from Temple does bode well in most fields. For me specifically though, I feel that a degree in film doesn't mean nearly as much in the film world compared to the work that you've actually done.

Campus Housing: My dorm living experience was pretty good considering that I had roommates that I got along with an RAs that were always present and helpful.

Health & Safety: I think temple does a great job protecting the students. Not only do they protect them against crime and sexual assault they also provide students with health care including free flu shots which i think is a great asset

Greek Life: It is not a big part of campus life. It does exist but does not overwhelm the school. I am not a part of the greek system so i know little about it

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: In the beginning I was not a fan of the school to be honest. It was not until I started with my courses for my major that I started to find my niche. Once those classes started I no longer saw myself anywhere else. The teachers in the education major are amazing and some of the best resources imaginable.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While Temple University wasn't one of the top schools I would have choose from, it still is a pretty solid school. The people are friendly, most professors are willing to help their students succeed and there are many ways to get involved on campus whether it be through clubs or research opportunities. Since the campus is big though, students must make an effort to stand out a bit since it is easy to end up with an non-individualized experience. The financial aid office can also be a pain to work with but once everything is straightened out, things should be fine. Overall, I would choose this school again possibly but would also consider other options seriously as well before making a final decision.

Health & Safety: On top of the highly successful blue-light system on campus, Temple also has a very large and active police force, as well as security at the entrance of every building.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being Temple has a widely known and respected Health-Science Campus, I believe my degree from Temple will benefit me during my selection to medical schools.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As an honors student, class sizes are small and the professors are excellent, with many being experts in their fields.

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.
