4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors are great and really want you to succeed. There are a few bad ones though. Look up professors before you take their classes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Fox has so many connections with different businesses and companies, and that really helps with internship and job searches.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Morgan, the "apartment-style" dorms. While it was very modern and spacious, I feel like I missed out on the freshman year dorming experience. Everyone kept their doors shut and I didn't make many friends on my floor. The overly-modern look made it look more like a hotel than a home. It also cost way too much. Now I pay a fraction of the price for an apartment off-campus that feels much more like home.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I rarely hear anything about greek life. I've met a few sorority girls though, and they've all been pretty nice.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Temple only really cares about football and basketball. All of the other sports don't get much funding or attention. The school even cut several teams a couple years ago while they're looking to upgrade the already nice football facilities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Temple University is great. Fox School of Business is providing me with a great business degree and the school's location means I do not need to look far for business opportunities such as internships.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I would not know where to go or what to do if i were assaulted, but Temple tries to teach its students not to have that predatory behavior.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Temple is a school is very well rounded. It does not try to scheme you out of your tuition and it does what it can to help you graduate.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've been told that employers love to hire Temple nurses.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It depends on the dorm you live in, but 1300 is where I live and its great.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our greek life is small but can still help out the social scene of campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Temple football, basketballm and volleyball all have great records.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is an awesome balance of social fun and school at Temple.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Temple is located in North Philly. This ain't some cute walk in the park. You have to be smart about where you are, what time of day/night it is, having a walking buddy, and using the resources provided to you. If you are smart, you will almost never have an issue with safety on campus (off campus, there's only so much you can do; if you can't handle it, don't live off campus, that is an option).

We have our very own police department that does a pretty good job, although they can be a**holes when dealing with students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really feel that I will be able to get a job after college, but less because of Temple and more because of my individual efforts to find internships. Overall, I don't feel that Temple has prepared me for a job in my career, and I'm relying more on the internships

There are, however, a decent amount of career fairs/resources on campus to help find jobs/internships, which I really appreciated.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Quality of courses - some courses I have no idea why I have to take them (in my major and gen eds). I've literally walked away and learned nothing

Professors - a lot of professors know a great deal about what they're teaching; however, a lot of professors either don't speak English well enough to be teaching (cough cough Math department), are awful teachers that have no idea how to instill that knowledge on students, or are so stuck-up/arrogant/miserable that it has impacted my learning experience

TAs - TAs are /not/ used efficiently here. Most of them don't speak English and aren't very knowledgable in the course that they're in

Funding - some of the best professors I know are stuck in an area that's underfunded because of the way Temple allocates funds (by students in each college, not by the amount of students taking a class in a college; CLA gets screwed over with Mosaics)

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Honestly, I don't know much about Greek life. No negative or positive view

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.
