Health & Safety: Bike cops and TU police constantly roam campus, making it an extremely safe place to be. That being said, I haven't had a problem with the police invading my personal space or even bothering me; it really seems clear that they are there solely to keep out criminals.

Campus Housing: I live in Whitehall, and I don't really have any complaints. It's a very social dorm, and while people may say that it is far away from campus, I personally believe that's just an over-exaggeration. The rooms are adequately sized, and the study lounges are great places to get work done or socialize. My only complaint is that we have just one ping pong table-- I wish there were two! The most social dorm is J&H, but they are communal style which I don't really like. Morgan is nice, but from what I hear it is very secluded and not social at all. Avoid Peabody; the rest of the dorms (1300, whitehall, and 1940) are all excellent options.

Greek Life: As per Temple's new rule, Freshman are not allowed to pledge Greek in the fall, so I have no experience in that respect. However, Greek life seems like a fun way to interact with/give back to the North Philadelphia community, and all the people I've met that are a part of fraternities have been really chill. Plus, they often throw awesome parties pretty much every weekend, which is a huge plus.

Athletics: Fall of 2015 was an amazing time to be a Temple owl, and that is mostly because of the football team. Prior to coming here, I wasn't very involved in sports (both watching and playing). When I came to Temple, I decided to attend some of the football games and that has changed my perspective altogether. Sitting in the bleachers of the Linc while chanting the "T for Temple U" song made me feel like I was a part of something amazing. Especially after the Temple Owls beat Penn State, you could feel the pride and excitement on campus.

Overall Experience: My first semester at Temple U has been, to say the least, an awesome experience. The campus is diverse and filled with things to do, people to meet, and clubs to join. I had many doubts before coming to Temple regarding safety, if I'll fit in, etc. but just one week in and all those doubts went away. I've never felt unsafe on campus (even at late hours), and there are just so many different people from different walks of life that it is very easy to fit in. At this point, I honestly could not imagine myself going to any other school.

Campus Housing: There are options to live hall, suite, or apartment style so you will find your best fit. Depending on your building you could make lifelong friends in your building or barely talk to anyone.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is low-key so you do not have to be Greek to have fun on campus. Greeks do a ton of work on campus and in the surrounding area that other students respect.

Athletics: Athletics are beginning to boom on campus with the success of this years Football team. The successful season was fun and brought school spirit to an all time high. Other sports such as basketball, volleyball, and field hockey have had good seasons and fun games, too.

5 College Freshman

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.
