4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Temple University has great academic programs, as well as a kot of student organizations. One of my biggest reasons for choosing to attend Temple University was that it is very close to my home.

Overall Experience: The campus is great. There are always activities going on and everyone in the campus are very friendly. The professors are all very understanding and are able to connect to their students. The environment is warm and welcoming. My favorite experience so far is exploring the campus. I just can't get enough of it. I am always amazed constantly going through every buildings in campus.

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: Temple was the smoothest transition I have ever made in my life. The faculty in the division of theater, film, and media arts is abolsutely outstanding and I feel so blessed to be apart of a fantastic institution.

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 Experience: This school is a great place to learn with wonderful, knowledgeable faculty and high-end research facilities. However, the size can be isolating for quiet/shy students, the financial aid office is the WORST, good luck finding quality housing on a budget, and dining hall food is sad. If you like it here, great. But it isn't for everyone.

Overall Experience: Being on the Ambler campus prevents me from experiencing main campus's atmosphere, but as someone who works full-time having the Saturday class options at Ambler is great.

Overall Experience: For my undergraduate studies, I attended Salisbury University in Salisbury, MD. I loved this selection and chose it because I wanted to play basketball for them. Once I graduated in the Spring of 2015, I decided I wanted to attend graduate school to study sports business and build on the Bachelors of Science that I'd earned at Salisbury as a Management and Marketing double major. Wanting to attend a larger school, I chose Temple University to attend to earn my Master of Science in Sport Business with a concentration in Sport Marketing. I've only been here at Temple for about a month, but I already love it. The location right in the city of Philadelphia is amazing. It's been a great experience thus far.

Overall Experience: I transferred in as a junior so I haven't been here long. So far, the experience has just been a normal school experience - nothing extra amazing yet. Not loving all of my classes.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Temple university is great. I met a lot of students that have the same interest as me and willing to make friends with me . Most of my professor are friendly and wiling to help if you don't something . The campus is big enough for activities to do after class. I'm so glad I went to Temple University.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at college has been great! I am very excited to be expanding my knowledge, especially at Temple University. My experience has been made great because of the hospitality that I have received from the people at my college including my professors and the rest of the Temple staff. If I had to chose again, I would most definitely without a doubt chose to attend the college of my dreams!

Overall Experience: Though the classes and teachers are engaging. I was promised that my degree would be able to be completed on Ambler campus, however, that was not true. They shipped me to main. If I had a chance I would've transferred to West Chest instead. I'm livid they lied to me about where I could complete my degree.

Overall Experience: My experience at Temple has been phenomenal overall! I'm in the Fox School of Business and I could not have asked for a better quality of education or professors! I feel once I graduate, I will be more than prepared to step out into the world. I like the fact Fox fosters independence, creativity, and innovation. They don't coddle you here at all and it really forces you to mature and find yourself. This is something I will be eternally grateful for. You will also never be bored at Temple either! There is always something going on and there's an abundance of clubs/extracurricular. There is literally something for everyone to get involved in. You also have the entire city of Philadelphia at your dispense as well!

Overall Experience: I love the people who attend Temple University they all possess an exceptionally unique take on their own lives and futures, and are willing to share that with the people around. To be part of such an interesting community is priceless, also everyone helps with the advancement of their peers, consistently providing wisdom to each other. That is why I would not want to change my decision of attending Temple University.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Choosing a school to attend for my Freshman year of college was a very difficult decision to make. Although I was fortunate to make that decision, it no-less challenging. I was choosing between my top choice, which was very expensive, or a larger university closer to home. A year later, I am glad I chose the university that I did.

I love my classes, teachers, friends, and opportunities I have at my school! Coming from a small town to a large university has changed my view of the world and has given me everything I could hope for in a home away from home. I enjoy being immersed in my interests all day, every day. If I had to go through the process of choosing a school over again, I would pick this school in a heart-beat.

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.
