4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors are horrible, but most of them are funny and amazing to have as professors. You have to be careful of who you choose and what class you want to take.

Overall Experience: Depending on your major and school you're in, you are required to have internships and the school will help you find the right internship for you.

Local Area: Center City is perfect for all your needs, it even has a Chinatown! Its about 20 minutes away and the train runs 24/7. Locals however, are mostly poor and may harass students for money.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Because Temple has a bad area surrounding the campus, there is always police and an emergency call box on every corner

Scholarships: unless you physically go to the office, goodluck..

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is always something to do, if you are willing to walk forever just to find out the party isn't that great. However, you usually can find something fun eventually.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I usually don't venture off campus for food since I have a meal plan, but when I do, I always find something good.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I think for a school it is a typical amount of strictness. nothing too crazy, and even though I am in north philly, I feel safe

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process was easy, although I do wish I would have received a little more aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Even thought there is a decent amount of variety, it is still a college campus so the food isn't wonderful. However, its easy to learn to make the best of it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living in Morgan Hall North! It is very convenient as far as location and food availability. Unfortunately i could only afford this luxury for a year.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Unless you're in greek life, non greeks don't really care for Greeks. Greeks think they're great while others couldn't care less. Obviously there are special circumstances, i have friends in greek life who i love, but overall it's kind of a joke and you only put up with the frats for the parties.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Really depends on where exactly you live, the closer to campus the safer it is, but obviously more expensive. nicer than being in a dorm since there's no strict rules but can be sketchy if you live far enough off campus. 18th street and back is pushing it and anything north of the 2200 block of park is sketchy.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: REALLY hit or miss, frats are usually cool

3 College Freshman

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

Campus Housing: pretty small, but great to meet people

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.

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.
