Health & Safety: I think the Temple Police and Security are what keeps me going to the school. Having been a security myself I kind of connect with these people. We get along fine as long as I behave. I do what I can to make their job a little easier concerning myself.

Scholarships: There is financial aid if you want to find it, there are a few scholarships and for some people there are also the ROTC and other military type help. But for a few of these scholarships you have to find out through a lot of slogging through their website and then you still have to check and hopefully qualify.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Many of these building are clean and up to date. They do have a kind of safety to them and from what I hear they also share a comradery

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Guys in many cases are helpful and very courteous to me. The girls are also very helpful but some are a little shy. I find both groups have people that may not speak English at all or very little.

Overall Experience: My school is right in Philadelphia PA but I won't say it is in center city. My school is in the North of Philadelphia and if I had better choices I would probably not go to this school. Or else I might go to its Center City partner. I might feel a little safer there.

College Senior

Majors: I have not had an internship and I don't think I will. In the major I am in not many places are asking for a student like myself, who maybe older that some other interns. I also don't have the GPA for some of these internships.

3 College Senior

Majors: I like it. I always have like American History. But this may lead me on to a life of working somewhere else like in the Library.

Academics: Some of the teachers are really outrageous. I had one that she wasn't just a teacher she was a hidden activist I had never known about. I think she really encouraged me a lot to lean more about history in the US. But I had to work hard in this class and it paid off with my getting an A. Other classes are ok but make sure of all the transcript entered in any files for you.

4 College Senior

Academics: I love History and I wish to finish it with a BA. This is a course that is interesting and sometimes a little frustrating.

4 College Junior

Academics: Every school is different. I love the academis within my Boyer College of Music and Dance. When I have General classes, however, such as English and Math, they are varied. I have had a few very good English classes. Others are vary.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love everything about my major. There are classes from theory to history, from orchestra to lessons. The class level and work load are diverse and pressing, only to heighten my love for the subject of music.s.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Many diversity is present. This is one of the most diverse colleges in PA because you have people from all over. There is not just international students, but Philadelphia itself is a place of diversity. I have seen people and I didn't even become aware of the culture until now. For example, many people I meet in my orchestra are from every region of the world. And you can look at iPalpiti orchestra for example. My teacher is from Kazakhstan and many are speaking Russian, Chinese Hindi, Arab, Spanish, Korean, and any language besides English. It appreciate having diverse associates.

College Junior

Campus Food: I do not use meal plan now. I used to use meal plan during my first semester, but I would find myself eating out of cultural (Korean, Mexican, Vietnam, Chinese, Italian, etc.) trucks. Eating cultural foods is what I like best.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Apply for financial aid anywhere you can. Do not let any opportunity pass.

Local Area: Philadelphia is nice, but one simply has to know which neighborhoods to steer clear of. If you simply follow this rule you will most likely be fine.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Cost and parking is just average

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I would like to see more student discounts and more healthy options.

5 College Junior

Majors: I had applied for and met with advisors for specific field of interest. They were very helpful in discussing the major I was interested in and guiding me what my next steps should be. I am currently a duel major in finance and risk management and am taking a summer course to help with the burden of additional classes for the 2014--2015 year. Advise for admission would be not to be afraid of asking any questions and conversations with older students/advisors/professors. They is a wealth of knowledge.

4 College Junior

Majors: I love the specific program classes I am able to take and such a large variety to choose from. I have also used tutors and found access to them very easy and quick. I would like to see more help to get internship or job.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: If you like the city, you'll love Temple. It's a real campus with a huge city as the backdrop. Very few city schools have actual campuses which is a giant plus. Philly is great for internships and things to do.

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.
