Health & Safety: Security is great on campus. Definitely scary when you go outside of the Temple bubble, especially at night. Should always have another friend with you if you are off campus at night.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most people seem to be very accepting. I've never seen anyone get made fun of for their beliefs or anything like that.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are small and it can be annoying living with another person, unless of course you get along well then it's great. They let you pick whoever you want for a roommate which can be really nice.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of places open it just depends on how far you want to go out and how much you're willing to spend. Most places are cheaper than staying on-campus anyway.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe almost always on campus, when I get off campus I can almost always count on seeing one or two bike cops patrolling the area. Most of the locals are very nice. The only times I would seriously worry about being robbed or hurt is at nights walking alone.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There should really be a deal between septa and Temple do allow students a cheaper rate on both the rail and subway. The cost can add up and makes it hard for students to see all that Philly has to offer

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Advertising is a great major, there are very few tests and it's more about getting a good grasp of the material than anything else.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major, most of the teachers enjoy teaching their subject and they all want to help us succeed

3 College Sophomore

Technology: They are pretty versatile but there needs to be more.

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.
