3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places along the strip of brad street and into the city. City life dining can be expensive, broad street strip fair. Not many student discounts, pizza shop called plaza pizza however takes diamond dollars, check them out.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are strict about the things that are not important and lenient on the things that should matter, example- drinking in the dorm rooms.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office workers do not do their job to the fullest extent to make sure you get your aid that you were awarded credited to your account. They will answer questions tat you did not ask just to tip toe around what your initial issue is. If you do receive any scholarship, grants,etc. make sure you are on top of everything and know exactly what you need to ask and get taken care of. The office is also always packed in the beginning and the end of the semesters.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not really the party type, but it is not hard to go down a street and find a party.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not the best options when you look at it from the health aspect. Majority of the staff are very rude and act like they hate their job, which makes your experience unpleasant. The value just is not worth it along with the fact that your meals don not roll over if not used.

Campus Housing: Living on campus (dorming) is just okay. With many dorms to choose from, Temple does in fact give many options. Morgan Hall is the newest addition for campus living, which is very beautiful. 1300 dorm, Johnson and Hardwick, White Hall, Peabody, and 1940 are also located very close to campus. All of the dorms have all the necessary amenities, however 1300, White Hall, and Morgan give you the option to have a suite in which you would share with 3 other people.

Campus Food: There could be more variety, and it would be beneficial to have more places take meal swipes and not just diamond dollars. I would also enjoy healthier options being provided.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I was able to find off campus living for next year a block away from campus. It is expensive, but much less expensive than living on campus. Many students after their freshman year opt for this option, the whole area surrounding temple is off campus living for students. There are a ton of options and variety.

Off-Campus Dining: Although i live on campus, I do like eating off campus since there are a lot of other options and it is convenient for late hours.

4 College Freshman

Administration: RA's are always available and on duty for whatever you need. They are very helpful when it comes to advice and helping roommates get along.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I do love Temple and that is the school I decided to attend. However, they should have given me more scholarships, other schools offered me more.

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.
