Off-Campus Dining: hit or miss, there are some pretty good places

3 College Freshman

Administration: while living in dorms, alcohol rules were enforced

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus in North Philly is definitely not a good idea. Students get robbery emails every now and then and its soo scary sometimes but that's the sad reality. THose homes are also cheaper than oon campus dorms so that's what makes them good apart from that the security is poor.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The frats usually have the best parties. Sometimes most of the parties end with fights but they are still interesting and fun.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The prices are affordable but the food is not always worth that much money. The restaurants are convenient but there are hardly student discounts. Cosi and the Tropical smoothie place are the best to check out

3 College Freshman

Administration: Robberies aren't usually prevented. People get mugged every now and then

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: enough money is not given out

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: JNH had the best breakfast. Cosi had the best lunch.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are not neat and they are crowded. The bathrooms are communal ones which are somewhat clean but not on a daily basis. Dorms are near halls. A lot of convenient stores around. Easy housing process

3 College Junior

Scholarships: wish financial aid could have given me more, but that can't be changed i guess

3 College Junior

Campus Food: decent food options, a lot of variety

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't received much help from my financial aid office. I'm struggling to pay for school and housing

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.

4 College Freshman

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

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.
