3 College Junior

Administration: It's not too strict and it's not too lenient. If you take care of yourself and be aware of your surroundings, you'll be okay.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: If you ever need a quiet place to study the student center, libraries and green spaces are the way to go, but when it's midterms and finals week, it will be packed, so it's best to know which spots will be more available. When there's campus events or activities, you'll see it and hear about it everywhere. Join the fun and don't miss out!

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The campus dining halls are okay. You won't go hungry, but sometimes it's better to eat out instead of on campus. I go to the lounge to get food on the go because it was convenient for my schedule. And once in awhile I use my flex to get snacks (especially towards the end of the semester).

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's a ton of different places to go to and you'll never get bored! The prices are convenient for any college student and they're close to campus too. I'd say my favorite place to go to (and it's on campus!) is a crepe foodtruck! It's around $5-$10 (depending on what you get) and it is delicious.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Being an out of state student, I prefer on campus housing for the safety and conveniency to classes. The affordability is quite pricy being that I am paying $12,000 more than the average in state student but for the benefits given and the sound mind given to parents it is worth it. The communities in resident halls or on campus living is lovely because your able to meet other people and build relationships.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't personally live off campus. But based on individuals known on campus. Off campus living is descent.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are people here from all walks of life, all different ages and backgrounds and states. You really get to learn a lot about different people and their heritages.

Guys & Girls: You're in a big city, so you see a little bit of everything. You find your people. But if you have a problem with certain people just BEING ALIVE (e.g. you're a racist or a homophobe) then go someplace more...traditional.

Scholarships: Temple likes to do this thing where they lose your paperwork, and pretend like they can't send emails or some shit like that just to piss you off. You eventually get what you need, but its a huge pain in the ass.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting in was really easy. I like my program a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Its small, so sometimes you get blocked out of classes you want to take. Being in the honors program helps a lot because you get priority registration.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Its a little pricey, and most places don't offer discounts but they will accept diamond dollars.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: You can get away with a lot, its pretty easy to sneak alcohol into the dorms, and unless you're falling over, the officers will let you go. As long as you're not obvious about it, you can get away with pretty much anything. But if you get caught, the consequences are pretty severe.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I only go to parties on campus, but the ones that I have been to have been fun for the most part.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I had a lot of fun at the football games, I think our team is going to be a lot better next year. The basketball team is really fun to watch too.

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.

2 College Senior

Campus Food: Availability of places at evening and night hours is horrible...not to mention, selection is food also sucks...

3 College Senior

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.
