4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great programs to help you get started.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Double rooms are a bit small. Bugs. Known for leaking.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: It's crazy the amount of attention and rewards are given to people for being aggressive and throwing a ball.

4 College Freshman

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think the campus security does a great job in protecting students on campus. Most of the incidents that happen occur off campus in the middle of the night.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many of the professors I have had have been great. They are knowledgeable about what they're teaching and are flexible when it comes to assignments

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Temple has a great standing in the media field and has produced a bunch of professionals including Kevin Nghandi on Sportscenter. This allows for internships to be more readily willing to look at and give call backs

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great if you're a freshman or sophomore however it's a pain when you're an upper class man. You're subjected to all the rules and annoyances u dealt with as a freshman and you're treated the same

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There is a trade off when it comes to Greek and non-greeks. Greek life people seem to be in their own cliques with an undeserved sense of entitlement sometimes

3 College Junior

Athletics: The main sports such as basketball and football have just now started garnering a better fan support because of recent success. However the school thrives in the not as popular sports such as soccer, lacrosse and fencing. Fan support for games is normally predicated on how popular an opponent is

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been amazing. I love the vibe around campus and everything is easily accessible. There's a good balance of on campus and off campus activities to do

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Just recently football became a huge deal. Up a division and almost beat some of the top in the country.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like temple for all the diversity that it holds and the different academic and social clubs going on that you can join. The only thing I realized while I was there is that I do not like being in a city

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Workload is tough but feels good accomplishing it

Athletics: Not a sports person-our facilities are stillgreat

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love it, it's the best school in Philadelphia!

5 College Junior

Academics: There are a lot of different academics offered at the school. I am majoring in biology and the department here is very challenging. But it is also very rewarding. Lots of different research opportunities for students are offered, the MRSC helps with studying and tutoring, and there is a lot of help offered if you are looking.

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.
