Overall Experience: I love my school. Not all professors are great, but there are some great ones that really care!

Athletics: They want to build a brand new football stadium on campus

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school is located in North Philly, and does have some bad reputations on its location. I have felt safe so far, but next year when I live further away from campus I will use the Escort Program that temple has for students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I do have a lot of professors which clearly love their jobs. I am sad to know that most of my professors are adjunct professors, and some might not come back the following year. I have had one bad experience with my tenured professor last semester, but so far this semester all my teachers are pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of opportunity given at this school for jobs and internships. I, however, do not know how the degree from Temple will stand out during my application process after finishing my bachelor.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not really know much about the Greek life at my school, as I have not attended any pledges or Greek life parties.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit for the football team and the basketball team is great! I wish there was more hype about the smaller sports teams. I do not really know much more about the athletics.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Each semester has its ups and downs. I have had some great classes where I have learned more than I could ever think to learn. Even though I do not always see eye to eye with the GenEds, one of my adjunct professors last year was great. One of the best classes I have every enrolled in. However, not all obligated classes have been as I hoped, and some of my tenured professors seems not as interested in teaching as some of my adjunct professors are, which makes some of the overall experience not as good as it could.

Drug Safety: In Japan, drugs are beyond illegal. If you do them, you will get caught, arrested, and imprisoned. Then you will be deported.

The laws are different here, and there is no leniency.

Overall Experience: It's such a mixed sensation writing about this. The math department at this campus seems to have no real concern about students learning the material. However, the Japanese department (my major) is very receptive. The coursework in it is harder than most schools, due to very stringent grading, but the chances to actually use your developing language are immense.

My interactions with the Art and English departments have also been stellar. Interestingly, these instructors seem to care about the material beyond what would be expected.

Health & Safety: Being in Japan, the campus feels safe. As for how it is beyond, I'm really not sure yet.

Campus Housing: Temple Japan has contracts with dorm facilities here. In my case it is the Kitazono Women's Dorm. It is a nice facility, but marred by a very strict curfew and very high prices compared to living out of the dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Japan Campus is very much a mixed bag. Some classes are almost completely hands off; the professors don't even engage you or are hostile enough that participating is difficult. Then you have the instructors who have won awards in their fields, and are an immense joy to work with. So far, there is more good than bad, but I have days I worry about interacting with certain departments in the future.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: At Temple I have had a wonderful experience except for hiccups in transferring to Temple.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Temple provides a lot of services for people that are victims of sexual assault, and they also make moves to prevent it every day. You'll always see something related to it around campus because they are conscious that it happens here sometimes and want to stop it. In regards of safety, Temple is located in an unsafe area, but the Temple police is constantly doig rounds and checking everything. You will ALWAYS, see Temple police around campus, either on cars, bikes or on foot.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It honestly depends on the school, some may be more prestigious than other ones, but every degree gained from Temple will have an incredible weight when looking for jobs, specially in Philadelphia, and to great extent in the rest of Pennsylvania. The most prestigious school in Temple is probably the Fox School of Business, which is extremely well ranked.

Campus Housing: I love where I live right now, Morgan South, because it comes with many ammenities that other dorms don't get like a big living room or a big TV. I also consider that the rest of the dorms on campus are really good except for J&H, and White Hall.

Athletics: They all have been really good this year (2015-16) and I am entirely sure that they are just going to keep getting better and better every day. The school spirit is amazing. Basketball and Football games are always crowded with people, the rest of the sports stay a little under their shadows, which is the only thing I don't like.

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.
