4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think it all can vary from professor to professor, but my first semester went well. A few of the professors took too long to put grades in and it was quite frustrating.

Campus Housing: I live in Johnson and Hardwick and my roommate and I run into a few headaches here and there but overall we have been enjoying ourselves. We are moving off campus sophomore year and we look forward to that, but our experience in J&H was good.

Overall Experience: Our school is amazing and there is a place for every walk of life to fit in and feel at home. The energy that radiates throughout campus is enough to get us out of a funk during finals, or during a week where we suffered a tough sports loss. It is in such a prime location in one of the greatest cities in the world and opportunity is at every corner. There is adventure everywhere and that is such a crucial part of the college experience.

Health & Safety: As long as one sticks closely to the actual campus buildings, the campus feel safe. There are always people walking about and security guards on the corners and in every building

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, my professors have been great and the class sizes were not that large. So far, I only took one large class but the professor took the time to learn everyone's name and be available for his students so it did not feel like I was being lost in the crowd. The only professor I had trouble with was one that did not speak good English which wasn't too big of a problem

Health & Safety: I have never had an issue on or around campus but I know that Temple has a number of services that could help me should the need arise.

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.

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.
