4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Temple is a great option for students. However, with the divisions of different greek organizations, cliques and subdivisions are formed in the greek community itself.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The varsity sports wise, Temple is a great school to be at. The basketball and football team are top tier schools in the national college standings. Students enjoy going to the games and following them, at their highs and lows. When at their highs, the school becomes a beacon of fun and unity. Athletics for the regular students have their perks and downfalls. Many of the facilities are usually taken/filled with other students that want to participate, which may engage students to be pushed away from the athletic side of college. I enjoy playing basketball at our only basketball facility, but sometimes, it is very packed.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is unique in that, each student has their own way of living school. I believe that as a student at Temple University, they are given the freedom to become the student that they want to be, which may be good or bad. Overall, I enjoy my time at school, with the fair share of ups and downs that come along with it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Generally I feel safe on campus because there are often securities around or near by. Though it is better to be with a group than being alone.

Campus Housing: Some dorms are newer and cleaner and more expensive while others are cheaper and older and farther from campus as well. It is more convenient to live on more expensive dorms because it is closer.

Greek Life: They are very involved in the sense of volunteering in the community. Non-Greeks think them as very cliquey but it really depends on different people.

Athletics: Our athletics in general are average. Their performances are average but on the other hand, their spirit is very strong and committed. That makes the whole university getting involved.

Overall Experience: Within the first two years into my Temple Career, I slowly liking it more and more. The students here are very diverse and accepting; which was what I looked forward to in college.

Health & Safety: There are a few crimes here and there, but other than the campus is very safe. There are always police patrolling the streets and there are services that police officers walk home students at night if they feel unsafe or just want to be protective.

Diversity: Even if there are some people who make others feel uncomfortable about their ethnicity, economic background, political beliefs, religion, gender or sexual orientation, there are always safe places to share about these experiences with supportive people who understand these experiences.

Drug Safety: Drug use isn't very apparent outside of party scenes.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Because of the location of the school, crime/assault is highly likely. However, the school does everything in it's power to prevent these unfortunate situations by informing it's students of criminal activities on campus via email and text message, as well as online interactive sexual assault information sessions.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The professors I've encountered thus far have been amazingly supportive and enthusiastic. They present their class in a way that makes learning fun and interesting.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I put a lot into researching colleges/universities and found that Temple has a wonderful Psychology program and wonderful networking opportunities that are accessible to undergrads and graduate students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Sororities and Fraternities aren't extremely apparent on our campus. Greek honors clubs have a little more involvement.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The football and basketball teams are a pretty big deal on campus. They're really great at raising support for the school because the members are perform extremely well.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I love my school because the staff that I've met so far have been extremely encouraging. As a somewhat quiet student, I was a tad bit overwhelmed by going to school in the middle of the city. But the students are really fun and encouraging too. I love my field (Psychology) and love the professors working in my field (I even bought a book written by one of the professors to read in my leisure time!). The campus is pretty diverse and I've made new friends as well as connected with old friends. The classes I've had were really interesting (even the ones not pertaining to my field of study) and the professors were really enthusiastic. The students and professors have definitely made y college experience less overwhelming.

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.
