5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have only a handful of less than desirable experiences at Temple. That being said, this school is awesome. You get out what you put in, as with many things in life.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Haven't lived on campus since freshman year and it was pretty average. Not worth the price if you can save literally thousands of dollars living a block away. They do take care of like everything for you though. If you're new to the area, consider living on campus for at least a year. Once you're familiar, you're good to go!

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Find your perfect fit! Recruitment is so fun and easy!!! Come out and join.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I don't know a lot about the sports at school. I use the gym called IBC like every day and it's great.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Temple is an up and coming school! Their programs are recognized all over the nation and competitive. If you come to Temple, you can be sure you're getting the education you need to be prepared for the real world. Don't rely on what you hear about this school as far as safety and otherwise. Come here and create your own perspective.

Health & Safety: The Temple U health and safety on campus is excellent.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors, or at least the good ones, are going to be available and hardworking. The not so good ones...well...

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There's events with various businesses practically every month, and some majors set you up with an internship during your junior or senior year.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing certainly has problems, but the Towers are nice enough for what they are.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Temple University so far has been an excellent experience.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The Nightlife at my school is beautiful. The entire broad street is lit up and the students are still out studying.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The party scene at my school is just like any other party. Everyone is drinking and wants to have fun. No none let underage students get in, which is great and there is never any violence, just party and fun!

5 College Junior

Academics: The academics at my school are pretty fair. You have to make sure you stay on top of your work no matter what the major, minor, or gen ed class it is. the professors are great as well as the TA's. the special study options are always available. The registration process is organized, but it takes so long because of the amount of students that go to Temple University. The most popular place to study at is the Tech. It is 24 hours and it have Starbucks! Overall the academics are great and fair and offer plenty of help with any class at any time if you seek it.

5 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity on campus is huge and it plays a big part of the campus life style. If it is not diverse it is not right. It would be weird to walk into a room and to see only one group of an ethnicity of people, at my school you would surely be surprised. Everyone is accepted and it is great to get to know about someone else's beliefs and their view on life and how to handle different situations.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: The is barely any known drugs that are visible on campus. They thing that is visible is the bar on campus and they are very strict about letting under age students into the bar to drink.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The security on campus is always there when you need them twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. They even have a call button on campus if you do not see security in sight. They offer different help when it comes to feeling safe on campus such as, having a security officer walk you to wherever you would like to be walked to day or night, they have shuttles to take you to your home or dorms. They even send out alerts regarding issues that have happened near the temple campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great. You get to have the city life while going to school. You have all the stores, markets, and other shopping centers right near you. The train and bus rides are located directly in front of campus, you could never get lost. Everyone is friendly and you might even have a classmate in the same dormitory as yourself. Living in the dorms are pretty cool as well, but it could be a lot more spacious as well as privacy could be better as well.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel as though my school is excellent. It provides professors who are determined, organized, and ready to teach their students to the best of their abilities. They offer office hours on their days off or when they are at the schedule of their day to get ready to go home. They show passion in what they know and tries to help you to understand rather than just learn and remember. How the professor teach is what is most important to me and that is why I love when they involve TA's because they know that their class islarge and they know that they can not get to everyone to answer or help with their questions. The TA's are just as passionate and helpful and love what they are learning. Overall, my best experience is the teaching process and how they love what they do.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics at my school is a big part of the campus life. They do show team work and sportsmanship. The fans at the school support them heavily, almost as if they are on the team with them. Trying out for the athletics for any sport is relatively difficult. The person will have to be at the least almost as fast or as good and talented as though with full scholarships. Overall the athletics is powerful, competitive, and demands the most hardworking and dedicated team players. If you cannot abide by those rules then you will surely be cut from the team.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's not in the best area, but the school does try to make up for it with good security.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As long as you don't let everything get to you, you can have a great time and great experience at this school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A lot of employers seem to value a degree from this school and it seems that a lot of people find quality work outside of it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoyed my first year of housing and everything went pretty smoothly for me going in and out.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: A lot of people join Greek life, and although I wouldn't do it, it's good for people who are interested.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: It was great to be a student this year as both the basketball and football team did very well.

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.
