Campus Quality: There are countless social events to attend.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Temple University has several food trucks.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: My school is very diverse and very large therefore one will meet a bunch of different types of people. People range from being very athletic to very artsy, to a typical partier.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Because Temple is in the city the weather can be pretty monotone. I don't mind the weather at all.

5 College Freshman

Technology: Temple is known for it's countless computer labs. The architecture wing alone, has it's own printing and computer lab! Each dorm has a printing station along with computers, as well as the tech center and the library. It isn't difficult to find a computer, unless it's finals week, it may become a little more challenging.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Temple, and couldn't be happier. The diversity is great, and so it the student community. It's a city school, which only adds to the thrill because it's more than just the school that I am experiencing, but also the city itself.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus this year, but I plan to live off campus next year and I love the number of affordable options I have. Although because it is located in Philadelphia, it can get unsafe in certain areas.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love on campus, and I love the sense of community that is built. Also, there are a lot of different activities that are offered through housing and a community is encouraged.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Because Temple is a city school, it's real easy to get around, and public transportation becomes a second nature for students. Long distance transportation is pretty easy too, because it is so accessible.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Events are always going on at campus run by the students. Such as free food and fun friday. Or students can take a 10 minute subway ride into the city

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not know a lot about the Greek life at Temple, but I respect their motives and what they choose to do with their time.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The school always makes sure that the snow is cleared off the pathways. Although bad weather is inconvenient because it is such a big campus

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports and recreation are a big part of the school. People enjoy going to the gym or participating in intramural sports or club sports. As well as going to football or basketball games.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Do it as early as possible

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: They have safety transportation to take students back to their dorms when its late

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: You're in the middle of Philly there is always somewhere to go.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have their own police force.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The subway is usually the best way to travel. The buses are second.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Honestly, off-campus dining is only worth it if you really want Chinese food.

Greek Life: They throw terrible parties, and most of them are very cheap.

1 College Sophomore

Local Area: Walking around--during the day or at night--alone is dangerous.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Temple nickels and dimes its students, and they refused to make the new scholarship guidelines retroactive, which would have helped a lot of students afford their education.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: There is usually never any parking when it matters the most.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Temple is the go-to school if one loves to party. There's usually something going on every night of the week.

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.
