2 College Senior

Campus Food: The food is horrible and overpriced.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a plethora of food trucks.

Scholarships: I feel as if there should be more help for out of state students. I believe there are better aid packages for younger students, but seniors get no love!

5 College Senior

Diversity: Temple is one of the most diverse campuses around.

2 College Senior

Parking: There are too many students and faculty, and parking is hard to find and expensive.

Health & Safety: The campus is in a terrible neighborhood, but has staff (police) to aid in combating the lack of safety.

4 College Senior

Technology: We have one of the best computer labs in the country for a college campus, however we also have a huge amount og students using the computers at all times.

Majors: I am extremely satisfied with my program. I would not make any different decisions if I had to do it again. I hope to be an actuary, and I have very little concern about employment after graduation, because I already hold an internship and part-time job in the field.

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.
