Overall Experience: I adore Temple University! The close proximity to Center City Philadelphia, the strong alumni base, and the large number of adjunct professors who still work in their field of study makes for a wonderful learning experience that will truly prepare you for life after school. It's a relatively affordable option, and I couldn't be happier with my choice of school!

Overall Experience: if I had to do it all again I would chose the same school, Temple University. The diverse culture that I have experienced being here for 3 years has change my perspective on life. It has made me a more insightful and empathic person. Additionally, campus life is great there is a club for everyone and there interest! The campus atomosphere is so warm, I remember my freshman year when I would get lost going to class the upperclassmen were friendly and happy to answer any question I had. I really love this school, Temple University was my best choice!

Overall Experience: Living on campus is amazing. Although I live in Philadelphia my mom allowed me to stay on campus which was the best choice I ever made. It is so lively, and there's no parental control which allows me to live a little, meet new people, and enjoy the college experience. Temple's students are high spirited and very outgoing, it is always a joy hanging out on campus, watching college student scream, and have fun while walking the campus.

Overall Experience: Temple so far is great , the diversity is amazing and so far my favorite experience here is the pride Temple has in the football and basketball team. I love attending each game for the hype and positive vibes temple has when it comes to sports. I would choose this school all over again based off of how great the academics and school spirit is

Overall Experience: I Like Temple. I'm still getting used to the change of scenery because I'm from the suburbs and Temple is in the inner city. But it's not bad at all the dining options are decent as well as student body diversity, extracirriculars, and majors

Overall Experience: So far, I love Temple University! At first, Temple was at the bottom my college list. I grew up in the suburbs and I was not so sure that I would feel comfortable or do well in the city. Also, Temple has a bad reputation from the perspective of a suburban person because many may assume that because of its location, Temple is a very dangerous and unsafe school to attend, however, I found out the exact opposite after visiting there and attending there. Temple University is one of the brightest parts of the city with street lights and people always on the street whether they are a local, a student or a cop. Temple has so much security it is more than enough. There are bike cops on just about every block, and blue security poles around campus that allow students to click a red button if they feel uncomfortable or in immediate danger and with the click of a button, a group of cops will come to the rescue (not exaggerating). The academics are top notch and the school that I attend, which is the fox business school, is rated in the top ten in the region. I fell in love with the city because everything is easy to access unlike the suburbs and the opportunities are endless.

Overall Experience: There isn't much about my actual school and the academia that I have to say about. I sometimes wish my classes and courses had more sense and organization to them however, overall I've been enjoying my time here.

Overall Experience: I have had a very different experience as a graduate student than as an undergraduate student. However, it is safe to say that the professors are very knowledgeable and respectable, and the school is a great place to be.

Overall Experience: Classes are easy enough, there is an infinite variety of things to do in Philadelphia, the campus is compact enough that everything is in reasonable walking distance. Housing and meals are very overpriced, but there are plenty of off-campus options. Parking is tough, given it's a city. I'd choose Temple again, but I would consider the urban environment more.

Overall Experience: There are a lot of upsides and downsides to Temple. Especially within Fox, there are so many opportunities to grow professionally and get involved in the school. Unfortunately, sometimes the classes don't really challenge me and I don't get the intellectual vibe I'm searching for from Temple.

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.
