5 College Freshman

Local Area: I am attend school at the Japan Campus of Temple University, which is located right in Tokyo. If you like big cities and lots of people, it is amazing. The locals here are really kind and not at all how most people would portray them. The subway system is the best in the world, and there's plenty of stuff to see.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The computers are up-to-date, and they run smoothly. WE have a couple of Mac labs if you're into that sort of thing. Once you get a hold of the Wi-Fi it is extremely convenient and there are no problems that I have encountered.

Campus Housing: Some buildings are better than others but overall good.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places one can eat.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms all vary. For example you have Peabody which is pretty run down and usually goes to the kids who put their deposit down late. Morgan Hall was just built in 2013 and is absolutely beautiful one of the best in the country.

Off-Campus Housing: You have to remember you're living in North Philly! If you can process what that means then you are fine.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Philly is an amazing city there is so much to do and explore you will never be bored here.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is so much at Temple I feel athletics are sometimes overshadowed.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Temple's campus is actually quiet small so on-campus transportation is almost nonexistent. Everything is extremely close and there are two subway entrances, one on each end of campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Go into the city and eat!!!

4 College Freshman

Academics: There is literally a class for everything here and if you're unsure of what to major in come to Temple

Party Scene: It's only okay because of the area. Walking around in North Philly isn't safe, but as long as your with a group of people you will be fine. You're never bored here and there is always something to do.

Weather: Absolutely freezing during winter, and being in the city when it snows accessibility on the roads is impossible to get through. Roads and side walks are very slippery and slushy. Most days are sunny and nice around campus, so overall fair.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: One of the most diverse schools, and open to all kinds of people. Incredibly accepting of all different races and sexuality.

Greek Life: Only the frats have houses which are very run down and abused, used for parties. Very expensive with limited opportunities. Most students choose not to partake in joining but many go to the parties.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many Chinese and pizza places. There are chains close by, and the prices are average, but there is not many healthy options close to campus being in the city. Also, next to no sit down restaurants, most places are grab and go.

Scholarships: Students are not very aware of the financial processes, especially freshmen. Many people have had problems, but as college students money is always a huge problem.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Many people go crazy at the frat houses, underage drinking is pretty abundant depending on the student. However, since the parties are on campus it is safer for the students to get to their dorms safely.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The tech center is a great resource since it available at all hours, but during the day it becomes next to impossible to find a computer because of all the people that come in for classes and do not live on campus especially close to the end of the semester. The wifi needs to be continually connected in the dorm, but around campus it is available in most areas. Printers can often become crowded in the library, but at the tech center it is great for computer graphics with a wide range of printing options with the best software.

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.
