3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are a lot of police around, but you're also in North Philadelphia, so you just have to be careful. The best person to look out for you is you. Don't walk anywhere by yourself when its dark, maybe even when its light out. You can never be too cautious.

Academics: The workload is crazy...most business students have to try really hard because during midterms especially finals it can be a task....In order to get internships you have to network heavily with students and organizations or else you'll miss out...

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety of places where you can go get some foods like Subway, wendys, 7eleven

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The athletic centers are as modern as they can be with all the latest machines and equipment. They provide an array of activities from boxing to zumba to swimming which is great for the diversity of the school

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Temple has to be very strict about who can enter buildings. ID's have to be presented before entering any building to minimize any threats. Professors try to encourage attendance as much as possible.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is the heart and blood of Temple University and we pride ourselves in our team!

4 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The main reason I am attending Temple is because of its absolutely amazing undergraduate biology program

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love my major!!! Biology in itself and the professors make it so that you enjoy learning and find creative ways to keep Biology interesting and fun for the students!

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.
