5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Temple University! The tech center has to be my favorite place to be. I love the city vibe that it has and how you can get coffee almost everywhere. Each building is within 10 minutes of each other from the center of campus so it is very convenient if you are in a rush! There is diversity among people and the food trucks!!

Health & Safety: There is a little bit of crime in the surrounding area around Temple University but is usually unrelated to temple. There are many officers, philadelphia and temple officers, walking or riding their bikes around and there are the 911 call posts all around campus. You need an ID card to enter most buildings and all of the exits that aren't the main exit have security.

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing depending on where it is can be very expensive and definitely not worth it unless you want to live with a lot of people. I commute from home because that is where my job is but if it was cheaper in the city, I would love to get a house or apartment.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The transportation is not that bad. I take the bus, train and subway often. There are many parties but I tend not to attend them as I am busy after school with work and then homework. It is very easy to take the subway into the city to go to clubs but as I am not 21, I do not go to clubs. Many people occupy the library and tech center, especially when midterms and finals roll in.

Weather: It's the North East. We have it all.

Overall Experience: Overall, the only real complaint that I have is the surrounding area's safety. The neighborhood is somewhat dangerous, but it's nothing that can't be dealt with by simply paying attention and keeping your common sense about you. The facilities, and faculty, and student organizations are all very good.

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.
