Temple Police are HARDCORE and in an area like Temple is in, it's necessary. I feel extremely safe walking around on campus except from the hours of 11pm-7am, when I'd prefer either to be in a large group or just not out at all. The exception to this is if you're studying at the tech or something, you can request a shuttle that will drop you off at your dorm or another location if it's between like 6pm-6am I think the hours are. Literally just don't be an idiot. All of the armed robberies that happen are usually off campus to a person who's walking alone at night, but on campus can be pretty sketchy too. Temple also offers walking escorts if you don't want to wait for the TU Flyer. All in all just don't be reckless!

Some Dorms Show Their Age – In general, the newer dorms are extremely nice: they offer private bathrooms, amenities such as swimming pools, lounges, convenience stores, and gyms, and generally feel alive, welcoming, and warm. In contrast to this, older dorms (such as Peabody or Johnson & Hardwick Halls) have communal bathrooms for the entire floor, are poorly lit, and offer no amenities whatsoever. If you're lucky to get assigned to a newly built dorm: great! If not, Philadelphia always offers off-campus housing at competitive rates.

Fox School of Business One of the Best – I'm an entrepreneurship major at Temple University, and so far I'm incredibly happy with what I've learned in just my freshman year, despite taking only base business courses and general education requirements. The Fox School of Business is one of the best in the nation, and I now understand why. I've learned the difference between different business dress styles and what's appropriate for each, I've also learned better time management skills, networking skills, and how to build a decent resume, and all in the course of a year! And the professors are incredibly willing to help you if you have trouble with the coursework as long as you're making an effort in their classes.
