5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone at Temple is pretty great most people are nice and helpful. I would say we also have pretty attractive people on campus. Hook-Ups tend to be the norm but there are relationships if you look that way also.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is there on campus but if you do not join no one treats you any differently. Greeks party a lot so the houses are pretty bad some nicer than others but I wouldn't want to live in most.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am an Secondary Education History major although I have non taken any history classes and won't until my sophomore year I like it so far. I cannot really comment as I am a freshman.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Temple does layout all of the requirements needed to graduate. There is no surprise they show you who the professors and TAs will be when picking classes. There are definite study areas such as the Tech center which can get loud sometimes. Registration isn't bad online at I believe 7am it takes about 3 mins if you do what you are supposed to.

3 College Freshman

Technology: There are a lot of computers on campus for personal and in class use. The WiFi however can be pretty bad at times. There are also a ton of printers and bringing one isn't really necessary.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: North Philly isn't the best but we are close enough to go to the city on a subway ride. The city always has a ton of stuff going on and it is not odd for people to just spend the day there.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a ton of housing available on and off campus. Temple does a good job at showing dorms and describing them on the site for you. Currently living in the newest dorm I think the lottery system is very fair.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's North Philly in the city the weather has a mind of it's own. Personally I hate going out in the rain unless I have to.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have loved my experience so far minus the fact that sometimes calling to try to talk to someone higher up you get the run around.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: A lot of opportunities exist just not everyone goes for them. The Tech center is 24/7 and houses tons of computers you can even rent a laptop. Freshman can get a free passport to study abroad. There is so much more if you look for it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: IBC and TuFF are great fitness centers that are large and prominent. The SAC is a great place to grab food, hangout, and learn about what is going on around campus. The library is open late and has a large variety of books. The Liberians are also online to IM which is nice. It's the middle of North Philly so green spaces aren't abundant but there are some such as the beach and Morgan Hall. Temple does inform students of events usually at the SAC on billboards but we do get emails.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places to eat in Philadelphia!

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.
