Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing provides a very different experience from campus housing. For those interested in off campus housing, I advise you to be cautious because you may be far removed from the safety of the campus.

Administration: Temple University's attendance policy is very strict. The only thing more stringent is the academia policies.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Student or should I say student night life is incredible. The school is minutes away from downtown Philadelphia. As the city comes alive, so do the students.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Temple police are always on the lookout for students. They often patrol the campus on bikes and are quick to respond to any emergency.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: As a pre pharmacy major, I am faced with an aggressive curriculum. In spite of this difficulty, I have very excellent teachers and a flexible course prerequisite.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: TempleĀ“s demanding classes are remedied by vast amounts of resources at the students disposal and many seats in the library to provide comfort while studying. Ps: The library fills up quickly so try to get there early.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking policies are very laxed. Parking is always available in the University lots. But if cost an issue you can park around the campus.

3 College Junior

Administration: Students and faculty at Temple must show school ID when entering buildings.

3 College Junior

Majors: So far I am happy with the program I choose to pursuit. My career goals are for me to get into a good job with a higher position .

3 College Junior

Majors: I have not had the opportunity for an internship but I am looking for one. I would like one that pays well and that trains me in my area of expertise.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always see them walking our riding their bikes around campus.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: The Free shuttle is great, but public transportation fares are always rising. its just something you have to deal with. There are Zip cars available on campus but only a few. Most people use public transportation or drive to campus.

Athletics: Athletics are very important here on campus, even though the teams may not be that great lol. Intramural sports aren't that much of a big deal.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall thus far has been stressful financially. But I love the location of the campus and the availability to downtown Philadelphia. I would choose my school all over again for the sake of the world class Kinesiology program.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are multiple computer labs on campus that are fairly large. Free Microsoft software is a plus. And you get $21 dollars of free printing each semester. Tech support is great, and its free.

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.
