What is your overall opinion of this school?

Temple University is a great school with strong academic departments, a vibrant athletic community and endless resources for students. When I first came to Temple, I had transferred in from a different school where I was dissatisfied with the education that I was receiving. Temple has fulfilled the academic college experience that I was missing and everyday I feel that I am closer to my dream.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers are very good. They are always motivating but the class sizes are very big. I like the class times and the principles that it was founded on. I live a little outside of philly so the commute can be a little rough. But overall I do not see that it is a bad thing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Temple University is truly a school that gives you the experience that you make of it. It is a very large school with many commuters, but you can find your own community and niche. There is always something to do on campus and the entire vibrant city of Philadelphia is easily accessible. Large class sizes can be a problem, but professors and generally very welcoming to students who meet with them during their office hours. With such a large school there are so many clubs and activities that you will always be able to find something in line with your interests and if you can't, you have opportunities to start your own organization.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Temple University is located just a couple of trains stop from Philadelphia, which is a huge city with lots of activities and places to go. On campus and around there are different types of restaurants and services. From my personal experience, the professors I have had are extremely understanding, available always through email and open up highly debated conversations and be able to play devils advocated if needed. Living in such a diverse city opens your eyes to new cultures, customs, backgrounds, and plentiful amount of different foods. Cons of Temple is there lack of helping students with financial needs or mental health issues. In general, its hard finding someone who knows what their doing or even direct you to the correct place. The food choices are very limited and bland. The dorms on campus, specifically The Edge, often runs into a various amount of problems such as electricity going out, outlets that do not work, mice in the building, elevators shutting down, and running out of hot water in the middle of winter when its 12 degrees.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Temple University is home of the owls! Once an owl always an owl. TU does a great job at always making you feel like you are part of the family. There is a great initiative with the students to be better acquainted with the people from the area and to keep the city clean. Classes are full of great technology that advance the learning experience. All of the professors I had were memorable and truly gave me something to take away from each class. I fell in love with the campus and the city and wouldn't take it back to attend any other college. The facilities are beautiful, the dorms are spacious, and the class sizes are comfortable. I always ended​ up in a class with someone I had met before. There are a lot of students but meeting people and finding friends and lasting relationships is so easy here. I love being an OWL!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is something for everyone at Temple University. The most impressive thing about the school is the diversity of buildings, people, food, sports, clubs and majors. There is so much to choose from. The fact that it's a city school ensures that there are many things to do besides hanging in your room. The subway is close by and people often travel around the city to see things, go to museums, restaurants, concerts and more. Philadelphia is a great starter city, in that it has its urban issues, but it's a safe, friendly city with a lot to do. The courses seem to range in size and type. Since I will be a student athlete, academic support was super important for me. The Student Athlete Academic support program is remarkable and extremely helpful to all those who are playing a sport. They guide you through the process of signing up for classes, they keep you accountable for the work you need to do, they get you help for the tough classes and ensure your success. You cannot do better than that. If you are a person who seeks interesting things to do, a fun social life, a diversity of courses and lots of academic support, Temple is worth a look.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that this campus is wonderful and abundant in all different kinds of opportunities. I love the energy and everyone is accepting and helpful. There is no other school that includes diversity like that of Temple University. The main campus is in the heart of Philadelphia and there is nothing like experiencing my college years in such a lively city. I am eager for my future ahead at Temple University with my career path in Psychology. Temple University not only set the tone for me to do great things, but encouraged my dream that I already set myself. Needless to say, Go Owls!
