What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm currently a second semester freshman at Temple University and it's been interesting? to say the least. After about a month into my academic career here, I was already looking to transfer elsewhere. The dining hall food honestly made me sick so my saving grace were the restaurants that took meal swipes on campus, although they did not help with my "Freshman 15" problem. One thing to keep in mind is that this school, while great, isn't for everyone. It's a large student body on a relatively small campus in an area in the city that doesn't have the best reputation. I'll be honest, every sort of relationship I've formed has been very transactional and this place honestly feels more like a business than a school. I live farther away than a lot of other people in my class who came here, so many people already came in with people they knew from high school. The academics are honestly really amazing. In my college, the professors and staff obviously care a lot about their students and are very passionate about what they teach. If you go to their office hours, they're very willing to help you and have a conversation with you. Most of the professors I have come across are extremely knowledgeable about what they teach. Honestly, the only thing that has made my time at this school worth it are a few of the professors that I've had. Other than that, unless you're an extrovert and/or come in with a friend or two you might have a hard time fitting in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Temple is a very welcoming community, not only focusing on academics but also diversity and safety. While staying in the dorms may not be for everyone, it is definitely an experience full of community and friendship. The professors and classes satisfy any academic requirements.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Temple University is absolutely wonderful. From its unparalleled academic rigor to its teeming social life, Temple is truly a great school. Of course, because of its location, the university tends to get a bad reputation. But less-than-ideal events on and off campus are far and few between, and there is ample on-campus safety to ensure that every student is protected. It’s a great university for both commuters and those who live on campus. Additionally, it is culturally and historically rich. Choosing a school other than Temple would be committing a disservice to yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! It is so new and modern and I feel so safe there, even though it isn't in the safest neighboorhood. I love my roommate, and I think we'll room together next year too! The food is always good whether it is in the dining hall or the student center (chick-fil-a is my favorite!!)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy my time here. The city atmosphere is really a great learning environment and helps me feel independent and ready for the world. I've had great experiences with professors in and out of the classroom and they are ready to help when needed. I also have had success with my academic advisors. The school is beautiful to look at and a lot of the student buildings and amenities are very architecturally pleasing. I enjoy the people in my classes, and everyone seems to get along well. Things are close and everything is either an easy walk or subways trip length away. The library is a very good study location and there are plenty of resources available there too. I find this place good to do work and socialize. Food is another plus here. Though the meal plan was slightly expensive, the food was good. And if you don’t have a meal plan, there are a lot of restaurants outside of the cafeteria food to choose from. I really like how many options there are. I never get bored of campus and always stay busy or occupied. The Temple students are also really friendly, and the overall vibe is just good. The people make you feel like your home which is not something every school has. I’m a film major, so I will talk about the film department as well. You can’t take out equipment whenever and use the TU spaces to film and edit. Teachers always want to help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. There are some things that I would change, but overall it is a great place. As a commuter, the lack of parking is a bit of an issue. Everyone competes for the free spaces because they do not want to pay to park in a lot. On the bright side, I have had some wonderful professors during my time at Temple, that have really helped me in my journey.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoyed my time at Temple University. The teachers were great and always accessible. The small class sizes made for a better learning environment as well. They value the thoughts and opinions of their students. In addition, they challenge one to think outside the box. They have more than prepared me for my continued journey as a Nurse Practitioner.
