Off-Campus Housing: You save way more money living off campus than on campus for the most part. The process is just a hassle and trying to find four friends or so to fill up an apartment can be difficult. It is also not on campus and thus is away from some of the social life.

Off-Campus Dining: If you consider the food trucks off campus then it is dining heaven. There are so many different trucks with anything anyone could ever want

Party Scene: Rules on campus really keep people from partying so off-campus housing is where most of the action is at. Either that or the frat houses.

Scholarships: The amount I received in scholarships did take a chunk away from my debt but it was not what I should have gotten based on my GPA and SAT scores. They do a decent job with meeting financial need but without any merit scholarship you will be paying a pretty penny.

Campus Food: Where do I even begin? At the bottom of the J&H dorm is a buffet style dining hall that uses a meal swipe. There are many different food choices there and they are all delicious. Then there are tons of food trucks everywhere with anything one could ever want. The meals at the trucks are relatively cheap (around $5 or so). There is also a bar on campus and you can't beat that.

Off-Campus Housing: if you're willing to put in a lot of time, you'll definitely find some amazing housing options

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: food trucks are the best

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: frat parties are nasty. private house parties are the best

3 College Freshman

Administration: Securities don't really care for the most case, RA's don't want to mess with residences so they generally turn an blind eye

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Takes forever to process the financial aid letter and the staff is rude

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: You get tired of the food in about a semester if you have a meal plan. J&H food gives you diarrhea

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Since Temple is composed of 40000+ students, we have a lot of student housing on campus. Dorms help with making friends and are much more safe compared to off campus housing

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of nice houses as long as you don't venture too far out.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are always good pizza and Chinese places to eat at, most of which are open late.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are always parties on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The fraternities usually through the best parties.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I always feel safe on and around campus. Security and police officers are everywhere in a good way.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Most students get some sort of scholarship with decent SATs, ACTs, and GPAs

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.
