5 College Freshman

Academics: Advertising isn't a hugely common major here, but Temple has some of the best curriculum for it. So far I've had extremely experienced and knowledgeable professors and I've learned soooooo much about advertising as a career. We have a club and an on campus advertising agency with real clients, and there's a lot of internship opportunities.

Campus Quality: The athletic centers and gyms are top notch, I'm at the SAC every day and it's very nice. Liacouras as a whole is beautiful and there's constantly something going on.

Campus Quality: I love Temple, you won't be disappointed if you go here.

1 College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car on campus, but I know some commuters who drive and I hear it's awful. One time my friend missed an entire class just because they were looking for a spot the entire time.

Greek Life: Personally, I am not Greek mostly because I was never interested in it, but the sororities at Temple are basically non-existent. Frats are very prominent as there is some sort of frat at the founder's circle everyday fundraising. They also throw parties every weekend. ATO, Kappa Sig, and AEPI are some of the best ones.

Local Area: Going to a school in the city is hands down the best decision i have ever made

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the newest dorm and it's huge and I love it as well as the people down the hall, but it is a bit pricey

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe on campus as well as off campus. but straying a few more blocks off campus alone where the temple police don't travel to may not be the best idea, especially if you're a woman. Remember, you are in North Philly

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are definitely a lot of places to go, but using a meal plan on the weekends is a pain because johnson is the only caeteria open as well as a few places in morgan

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are definitely tons of parties to drink at but it isn't hard to find any other drug

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are so many people to choose from on campus, you will find a perfect match whether you are looking for a one-time hook up or a relationship

5 College Freshman

Transportation: In the city, transportation could not be easier. Trains, busses, and taxis are all over campus

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are scholarships for anything and everything

5 College Freshman

Academics: There is so much to do at Temple with the entrepreneurship major

5 College Freshman

Academics: Great classes, I love the fox school of business. It is amazing

4 College Freshman

Administration: You won't be bothered as long as you aren't doing any harm

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I have never been in a more diverse community and I love it

3 College Freshman

Weather: The wind is outrageous especially when it is the middle of the winter

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The football team was horrible and the basketball team is decent. Having good sports teams puts interest in many high schoolers applying to college. If Temple had a great football team that could fill a stadium, there would be way more school spirit plus interest in attending

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food gets kind of repetitive. Lots of food trucks.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Subway system attached to the school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Great athletic centers for one to workout.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housings are different in each dorm, but my dorm was great.

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.
