Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!


Temple University was one of the best schools I personally considered for the simple fact that its' student body is one of the most diverse I've ever seen, and its' campus imitates a small city in itself. When I'm on campus I feel like Temple is a town on its' own instead of a school campus, hence why you can find some of the surrounding area as 'TempleTown' on apps like Google Maps.


The quality of the professors and facilities available are just as legitimate and worthwhile as any private, exorbitantly priced university. As a transfer student, the lower cost of Temple University and knowing I would be receiving a wonderful education all the same was why I chose to be a student here. Don't let the words 'state school' fool you into thinking it's any lesser than a private, more 'prestigious' school.


Temple is a realistic school for students with a genuine student body from all walks of life that are looking to achieve excellence in their fields. I was accepted into several schools my Senior year of high school but the tuition they required combined with cost of living was unreasonable. Their status as schools however, often trumped the cost for most students that were accepted. Temple not only has a tremendous record of success for students in both the sciences and the arts, but it maintains reasonable tuition and living costs and continuously rewards those students who work and excell.


Temple University is one of the most diverse campuses around! One of my favorite aspects of Temple is the fact that it is located in the city. It is the real world and you have access to the entire city! You feel like an adult and you don't feel as if you are in a "college-town" type of bubble. I think it gives students more of a real-world outlook and understanding of life, which is amazing.

Temple is unique because of their diversity of students, the community that sorrounds the school and the variety of programs that are offered. Temple University is place where you feel you belong because it does not matter where you come from or what social class you are. It matters that you are there as any other student, and that is pursuing not just a degree, but also the opportunity to do something different. Temple makes alumni with great academic knowledge, but also great human beings aware of their surroundings and the things that affect their community.


Temple University has many unique features that are unlike other schools. I transferred to Temple University from Ithaca College and the one unique quality that is my favorite above all others is the city of Philadelphia, which the school is located in. Ithaca College is located in a small "College" town, whereas Temple is located in an active city. Temple offers many oppourtunities to help the community through community service, and even clubs which help clean the streets and plant urban gardens. I love being an active member of the community which I live in; Temple helps me achieve that.


As a city school, Temple provides diversity among a multitude of people which works as an active force to compress destructive and exclusive attitudes. Here, I have the freedom to be who I want to be without the nagging pressure to conform to my peers. Here, the confining bubble I grew up in safely, burst allowing me to take a closer glimpse at the complexity and variety of aspects in the world, such as culture and change. Temple has equipped me with the vital life skill of self expression, necessary for constructing future personal and communal success.

It is surrounded by working individuals in the real world and offers a numerous amount of employment opportunities, which will facilitate the transition of a person's life after graduation.

Due to the fact that attending college prepares one to enter the workforce, attending a university with a diverse population gives an individual the opportunity to become culturally competent and ethnically responsible.

Temple has one of the best study abroad programs in the country, a diverse student body, a proactive sense of community and a fantastic arts program.

I feel as though the location of Temple University is what sets it apart from other schools. Philadelphia is such an amazing city and it creates a significant amount of opportunities to students in order to gain experience in their field of study. Other universities that are located in small towns or rural areas may be a nice fit for some students, but the location of Temple University has suited me thus far and presented me with activities and knowledge that I may have never experinced had I gone to college in a difference location.
