Technology: Everything is available if you look, the only problem is the terrible network/wireless connection when you are not somewhere main like the library or the tech center.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Philadelphia consists of museums of all sorts, countless concerts and shows etc. Local sports and loyals are around, and the city is full of students and student friendly conveniences.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I walk everywhere on campus. There are two subway stations available conveniently located at each end of campus to get wherever you need off campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Events and traditions are spread out to various groups/cubs due to the large size of the school. The 24-hour "tech center" is EXTREMELY convenient. The library is always a great place to be, consisting of any book you need, and has access to books all over the country if you cannot find it there.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: A wide array of academics is available, although they could do well with some more specific programs. Social scene is the best part of campus, you meet so many people and experience so much. A leading characteristic is its city location.

College Freshman

Athletics: I have nothing to do with sports.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is the best. Social life is the biggest perk, then comes the simple fact of walking to class or anywhere you need. You meet people of all sorts.

College Freshman

Parking: I do not drive around/to school, nor did I ever. I live on campus and walk/use public transit.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: A top reason for attending is for the diversity. Faces, styles, beliefs, practices, and cultures of all sorts.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Living in Philadelphia means walking a lot, and taking public transit. So it gets really cold, and snow/rain is annoying. But nothing too extreme.

Off-Campus Dining: The closest things are on campus, so one must take the subway to get into the city for more options. But once you're there, you have an endless array to choose from. Discounts for students are out there, you just have to look.

Transportation: Temple University is in the middle of the very busy city. In other words, that must mean that several trains and buses are offered for transportation means. Even the ride to and from school is long for me, it is convenient because of all the available transportation options.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Temple University's athletics play a big role in entertainment. I have attended more than one of the football/basketball games and the teams seem to be all about sportsmanship and overall teamwork. It is amazing to see them win a game because that ultimately means that all their hard work and training have paid off.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Without a second thought, I would definitely continue to attend Temple University. My overall experience has been great due to the friendly environment, the clean spaces, the available resources, and the overall foundation of the university. I would totally recommend visiting campus if you have not to get a sense of what the college life at Temple University is really like.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are usually clean. Certain times, you would have to notify your roommate(s) that they should pick up after themselves to keep the environment clean for everyone. The social atmosphere is pretty nice because everyone is welcoming and it's rare that two roommates do not enjoy each other's company.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: My interactions with my fellow classmates and even strangers around campus are casual. When I'm walking down the hallways, I can expect a friendly smile from at least one person. When a new semester starts, I find it easy to greet people and form new friendships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Temple University's campus offer a wide range of options when it comes to food. For instance, there are food trucks, restaurants, take-out, and popular national fast food places (i.e. Wendy's, Dunkin' Donuts). The prices are reasonable depending on what you order. I know for a fact that I never pay more than $10 for a meal. The food places are within walking distance, which I find to be the most prominent factor.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Temple University offers a wide range of majors that fits any interests. Personally, my major is BioChemistry which is associated with several math and science courses, which may become a bit overbearing at times. To fulfill this major successfully, you must be extremely dedicated to independent studying because professors cover the main topics during class, but it is your responsibility to dissect the information even further.

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.
