4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: First semester went well. The classes and professors are great.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many students are involved in participating and spectating, however, I am not involved in athletics.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It gets extremely dangerous when it gets dark because Temple is located in the broad street area. However, I like the service that we have escort to walk us at night

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In general, every teacher's teaching method is different. I like when teacher is understanding and helpful. But when it comes to major courses, teachers usually just throwing the major information to you. Some of them are not helpful when you approach them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like that temple provide possible job opportunities for those who looks for job.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Love the spirit each team shares with each other. Love how supportive each temple students in which they attend almost every game as possible.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Temple overall is not a bad university, like other university they just want to make the most money out of you. However, they do push you toward your field of interesting and asisst you toward your desire field of interest. I feel like they do need to review the ability of some teachers because I felt that some of them just want to get over the semester by briefly putting informations into students' mind. In my opinion, a good teacher is one that would make sure students' are not confused by their method of teachings.

Campus Housing: White hall is the best dorm on campus, Morgan is highly overrated. Peabody is by far the worst as long as you aren't in there you should be fine hopefully it gets torn down soon.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: The greeks are very cliquey and make up the majority of people on campus who act stuck up and entitled. They lock all their members in the tech center and monitor them during mandatory 'study hours' so that they can brag about their average gpa's, which would be fine except that this usually results in large groups socializing disturbing most students who are actually trying to do work. As far as the 'alumni network' is concerned if you're in the business school you're going to get a job anyway, I can't speak for the other schools. Anyone who thinks that frats are the only parties at Temple really has no idea what they're talking about. We've recently had several houses disciplined for 'unsavory activities' which the student body has always known about. I'd say lots of universities have a big greek life, Temple isn't one of them. If you plan on greek life being a big part of your college career I'd suggest looking somewhere else.

Of course all the greeks will disagree, it's fair to say that we agree to disagree. We don't like them and they don't like us.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: For the quality of academic programs and level of career placement compared to the cost of tuition there is no beating Temple.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Temple has always been a basketball school, and we make frequent appearances in the NCAA tournament. Although it used to be infamous recently the football team has been on the rise, and is starting to be recognized nationally. Other sports on campus tend to be overlooked unless you are connected to them somehow, either interested or know someone on the team. Games are always a fun time whether you go alone or in a group, Temple has amazing tailgates and students tend to invite their friends from other universities for the experience.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: No complaints. They alert us immedietley if their is an issue surrounding the campus area.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of them I question how they are teachers in the first place, not because of their teaching, but how a select few care only about the course and the paycheck.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: the value of a degree from Temple is great.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I felt comfortable around the people I lived with and the RA's were efficient at what they did while providing a fun atmosphere.

4 College Junior

Athletics: No complaints. I'm simply not a sports person though.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Don't be an idiot, and you'll be fine. Don't walk alone, especially North, especially if you are a girl. Sad but true.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class size and professors really depend on your major. All of the big lectures (Anatomy, Accounting, Bio/Chem) have not the easiest course load. Overall, the professors LOVE when students go to their office hours.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wouldn't want a degree from anywhere else. And because there is a campus in Rome and Tokyo, Temple is everywhere.. Thus having alumni everywhere, making jobs easier to get if the hiring company has Temple grads in it.

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.
