4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is great on campus. Even though Temple is in a rough neighborhood, the police presence makes me feel really safe. I haven't been to the health center yet, however.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Temple has a lot of off-campus housing, but you wouldn't know about it unless you looked for yourself. Temple does not promote off campus living that much.

Party Scene: Not a huge party school, but you can still find ways to have fun.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: My school isnt a cheap school and they barely offered me anything, which was frustrating especially because I am an out of state student. I recommend going to the bursar's office, explaining your situation, and trying to get the money you need.

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.
