3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek scene is not a big deal on campus. As a member of a fraternity, I can't say that others see me much differently than before I pledged. some Greek organizations have a worse rep than others but that is typical.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: At first I experienced some trouble regarding financial services but it helped a ton to go to the student financial services office on campus--they'll fix any issue on the spot.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The basketball games and football games are big news around campus however intramurals and clubs are often overlooked as a result of it. Pretty fun atheletic scene though

4 College Freshman

Administration: Enforcement is pretty good however there are cases where it slips through. Academic integrity and attendance are important.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Absolutely love living in 1300. The building provides a way for many students to get to know one another from very different fields of study, adding to the diversity you get by coming to Temple.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's okay, it's very expensive and I wish I could have gotten more help.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The degree value from Temple is very high. They are very helpful in career goals, I got an internship freshman year! The best employees recruit from here.

Local Area: I like the big city, though sometimes it's not the safest place.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It could be improved, but it's nice.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: As a vegetarian, I often go to a local smoothie restaurant. Meat options are often so I am limited.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I would recommend the "quiet hours" be enforced.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not had a sexual assault within my group of friends, so I do not know much about how the program truly helps people.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid is lacking, but scholarships/grants are somewhat available.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Entering dorms with others is tricky with younger siblings who may not have ID cards yet.

2 College Junior

Local Area: Students tend not to venture too far off-campus. The surrounding neighborhood is not a safe area.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking alone on campus most of the time. There are security personnel and the blue light/police phones all over campus.

Overall Experience: I have had some negative experiences with professors and clinic supervisors. Overall, my courses are challenging and interesting. In such a small major, the variety of courses and flexibility in scheduling is limited, which is to be expected.

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.
