Greek Life: I hate everything about greek life here. its completely irrelevant and the only people that don't see it that way are the greek participants.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Its hard to get a lot of fan support because the school has a history of losing in a lot of its sports. Big time sports such like football and basketball are on the rise, unfortunately due to the cutting of some other sports

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Temple University is a great school. It is very diverse, has fun activities, and offers great opportunities. There are classes that help you find internships and assist you with making a resume. My professors wanted me to be successful. I am the type of person who sometimes really needs extra help and they made sure I received that help. The students are awesome. I've made a lot of friends that I hope to keep for life. The football games are probably my best experience at school. It was captivating seeing everyone become united to cheer on our team. It really showed how we represent our school. I am a pyschology major. I am a pyschology major because the subject interests me very much, and I hope to one day become a therapist and help people who really need it. There is not a reason why I would not choose my school all over again. I am confident in my choice of college. It just makes me happy being there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Temple University is one of the more recognizable names in regards to degrees of successful people. My own school (Boyer College of Music and Dance) within the university is ranked No. 11 in the country, tied with Yale University's equivalent to the program (Berklee College of Music).

Health & Safety: I have yet to need assistance regarding my health and safety or that of a friend.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not know about what other schools offer, but I felt very comfortable where I was (1300).

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: A great part of Temple is the lack of pressure to be involved in something. If you are interested in athletics or sports, there is a place for you to be involved in a club or intramural level, or a varsity level if you want to be heavily involved in it. However, if you are not interested, there is no pressure to conform and become involved. It's relieving for those who are not invested. I found that I really enjoyed attending football and basketball games during my first semester, and will continue to do so. I also have several friends who simply do not enjoy attending games the way I do.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had an extraordinary first year in college. I am a fairly independent person, I am passionate about my studies, and do not tolerate boredom, therefore, Temple University was the best fit for me. I have hundreds of options for gen-eds that I have to take, so that I am able to be interested, and more importantly, invested in the classes I can choose from. I love my major, and take pride in my work, making motivation to stay engaged in the material easy. I am involved in several organizations to fit my many interests, and am rarely alone in my combined interests. There are about 30,000 undergrads, therefore it is easy to find "your group" and a place to fit in. I simply adore my school, which makes succeeding there so much easier than being in a place where I cannot thrive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love going to Tyler and have had tons of great learning experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most places value the amount of work goes into getting a degree from Tyler.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was just not a fan of sharing a bedroom with someone along with the space consuming projects i had being an art student

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: i am not affiliated with anything greek and dont plan on it

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am the wrong person to ask about this I know people are involved in them and are big fans but i could care less about that aspect of the school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Attending the Tyler School of Art was one of the best decisions of my life, it is in an awesome city and I am constantly surrounded by top tier professors and like-minded students. Tyler does a great job of surrounding their students with culture that does nothing but enrich the experience. I would highly recommend this institution to anyone trying to pursue the arts in their life.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience with course and professors at Temple University has been unforgettable and I absolutely love the Education school of Temple. The quality of courses and professors prepare students for their future careers and helps them learn what is truly like to be a teacher not only in Suburban but Urban as well. Class sizes range but are fairly small and allow for more one on one connection with the professors.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Student career prospects are excellent and advertise as much help as they can offer to all students throughout campus and want to help students succeed and gain more opportunities for learning throughout their academic journey at Temple University.

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.
