Overall Experience: I have been blessed to have a lot of great teachers since I have been at Temple. There is a large variety of courses offered which, in turn, will make for a really great experience.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Through Temple, I have access to SMConnect, which is a great place to meet future employers. It has a great network and can help with so many internships. We also receive emails every day about more job opportunities, which is very helpful.

Health & Safety: The area around campus is very unsafe. It is always best to walk with someone when going around campus at night. Temple does work very hard to try to keep the community safe, though.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in Morgan Hall last year and it was definitely an incredible experience. The building is brand new and has an awesome view of the city. The only problem was how expensive it was. Lowering residential prices would definitely make the experience even better.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: So far since I have been going to Temple university, I have gain a knowledge and understanding of issues that has overcome through out the world that we talk about in a daily basis in our classes. I really enjoy being a student there. I have gain a lot of friends and teachers that I really trust .

1 College Senior

Health & Safety: I see security sleeping at the desk sometimes when I leave school very late, around midnight, one am... Sometimes, they're not even at the desk. I get TuAlert notifications on my phone about armed robberies within a block away from our art building. The place where I live is 10 block away and I have to stay at school sometimes if the weather is bad and I can't bike home safely. I find broken windows in our apartment and hear gunshots.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Honestly, I'm just here for the facilities and I learn on my own during the little free time I have. They don't talk to us about our careers and we have to do extensive research to find internships and jobs within our field, which is painting and sculpture

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: I live in a dangerous area

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't know if we have sororities or fraternities.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I don't know anything about athletics because I'm in an art building and I've never been to a Temple game because I don't care about sports.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The budgeting for the school is not distributed to all departments equally. The sculpture department really suffers because of all the tools we need and don't have while the glass department has it all. Some teachers care a lot and some don't so it's really up to the student to take their education into their own hands and learn what you can while you're here.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't attended Temple yet, but I got accepted for the Fall of 2016 and I visited campus before and it was 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.
