Athletics: Temple has a wonderful athletic department and really strive to do their best. Our school stands behind them 100%!

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For Temple being such an amazing school academically, they're financial aid is HORRIBLE. They seem like they don't care and don't want to help you get an education. They try to rip you off!

Academics: Fox School of Business is ranked in the top 5 business schools in the nation. If that doesn't speak for itself then I don't know what will. The professors are incredible and FOX provides many opportunities for you to jump start your career!

Party Scene: Since I am of age, the bar and club scene is amazing and I look forward to my weekends starting on Thursday by going to Masters bar!

Local Area: Philadephia has alot to offer when it comes to activities and different cultures. We are a city with a great nightlife and amazing attractions in the heart of the city! Temple University happens to be in the heart of it all which makes it 100% more enjoyable!

Campus Housing: Living in Morgan Hall North is very expensive but an all new building built only 2 years ago. A lot of new accessories/amenities including the dining hall on the lower floor. When it comes to the dorms they are more like suits. 2 rooms shared between 4 girls. Could be more spacious for what we pay. Besides that Morgan Hall North is actually pretty awesome to live in!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Alot of them seem very genuine and very smart. Others don't nearly seem as bright at all.

Local Area: It's very lively, everywhere I go people are always around.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I heard of greek life but I can't really make any assumptions. However, I do know that it's not that bad and people enjoy living their.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: From what I heard, it's ok, but I really have never been part of the scene.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's not the greatest, I wish it could honestly be better. It's way to pricey here and some buildings are over 9000$ a year.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: To pricey for what we pay for.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not an athlete myself but the campus has many facilitates that make it a great place for athletes.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Although there is a lot going on in center city, there isn't as much to do closer to campus. Center city is great though and there is plenty to do there. Temple is safe on campus, but not so much off campus. There are a good amount of students who get robbed, and I think there should be more police off campus.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics at temple are great, however I do wish there were more resources that nursing students could use as far as academics go.

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of dining options in center city, although there aren't as many options near off campus housing. It is mostly pizza places and things of that nature. It would be nice to have healthier options a little closer to campus but as far as convenience goes there is a ton of places to get food from. There aren't many student discounts.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think a degree from Temple University is highly valued and Temple is a great school to graduate from. There are career fairs all of the time and employers are always recruiting on campus. Networking at temple is really great.

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.
