I'm not sure if there is a stereotype at this school, besides the ones about the art students. Tyler School of Art is probably the most hipster place in the northeast. Everyone's got a style they think is original, which is really just outdated nineties. And the amount of females with nose rings (and some males) is outstanding. Apparently, nose rings with art students is like an acceptable facial tattoo. Since you can turn it up, you can get a "real" job. If you don't want a "real" job, then don't worry about what you put into your face- you work for yourself!
Everything people say about the art students is true (me being an art student myself), so beeeeee wary~...
I don't find any stereotype at this school.
I think geeks are the stereo types. They are so called "otaku" who are not flexible at anything. But we never judge people so there weren't really any discrimination or anything.
Templemade... and yes it is true
When it is nice outside the white students gather around the Bell Tower (known as Beury Beach) and the black and Spanish students play music and hang out on Liacouras Walk.
The game room in the Howard Gittis Student Center, as well as the wall of food shops located near Anderson Hall are frequented mostly by the Asian Students.
You may think that it's the nerds that are in the TECH Center and Paley Library at all hours of the night, but it is actually the procrastinators that are found "sleeping over" in these buildings.
Frat kids like to think they run the school, but their power stops at the doors of the frat house. By this I mean the only power they hold on campus is to whether or not they allow non- Greeks access to their parties.
Temple University is known as "Diversity University". We have a variety of stereotypes that include the Greeks, Athletes/Jocks and the Geeks. Just like pretty much any stereotype, they are not accurate.
One big stereotype at my school is 'ghetto' for lack of a better word. People assume that because we are diverse, and live in the city, that we are somehow 'ghetto' whatever that may mean. Yes. North Philadelphia is a very interesting place to live, and yes, you may have a homeless person ask you for money at least once a day. However, the quality of student at Temple is extremely impressive, and our community is very respectful and educated.
Well, I go to Temple University which is a huge school in Philadelphia with over 30,000 students. There is no stereotype for us because we are vastly diverse group of people. Most of the student are hard workers that usually balance a job, social life, and being a student. However, I think everyone in college goes through this.
Many Temple students are seen as "hipsters". A prominent stereotype at Temple is that all hipsters ride city bikes, dress in ragged clothes on purpose, and have an often aloof attitude. This stereotype is fairly accurate. Many Temple students subscribe to the "hipster" lifestyle and fulfill the stereotypes.
Like every college, there exists various stereotypes about the students who attend that school whether based on the school's reputation or on the reputation of the students themselves. Temple University is a really diverse college which is one of the reasons as to why I decided to attend. With such a diversity comes with it people from different backgrounds who possess all sorts of widespread stereotypes. We have what people call jocks, the frat kids, geeks, etc. What should be known is that this is completely different environment from what takes place in high school. These are still cliques but I find that at Temple, these cliques are not as segregated as they are at most schools and the students involved in them are not ostracized from other groups and are friends with people who are not in their particular group. There are stereotypes that one may hold about a particular group but that doesn't mean that those stereotypes are acted upon. Temple is a very inviting and warm college which makes it easier to make friends with anybody you might have never thought you would get along with. Once you get to know someone on an individual level, you get to see them in a whole new light and they could turn out to be your best friend. Since Temple is not a very big school, meeting people is not that hard if you are willing to let go of some of the stereotypes that have been thrown in our faces from where we come from. Don't judge others because then you too will be judged.
Temple has a diverse range of students, and each school has its own stereotype. Overall, the stereotype is of diverse young adults who love the city. And that is definitely true! You'll find students from all walks of life at Temple, and you're sure to find great new friends that you share plenty in common with!
There isn't necessarily a stereotype about students at Temple University, especially since the student body is so diverse. But because of the diversity, one could easily find a student that fits into each stereotype - there are Jocks, Frat kids, Stoners, Geeks, and more at Temple. Since it's such a big school, you're bound to find your niche somewhere!
Temple has about every student you can think of. There really is not a stereotype because of this reason. We have a huge art school so there are many artsy people and we are a division one athletic school so we have jocks but we also have one of the largest tech centers on the east coast so you have plenty of nerds too. Luckily Temple is full of one type; just plain students. Like me, you are a student who likes a little of everything and enjoys having the city of Philadelphoa at your finger tips.
My school is greatly diverse in all ways. It is one of the most diverse schools in the country. And, it is this broad diversity what makes me belive that my school has a lot of various stereotypes. You would almost find people of each and every strereotype at Temple. By the way, I don't like stereotyping.
Our school is one of the most diverse campus' in America. With that being said, there is not one stereotype that fits the majority of students at Temple. There are of course, the Frat boys and Sorority girls who always wear their letters on shirts. Then, there are the football and basketball players who wear their maroon red team logo warm-ups every day. Finally, you have the skaters, who can be found skateboarding next to the subway. The rest of Temple is identified by race groups: Whites, Blacks and Asians.
Temple is a diverse school with students from all over the world. There is no one common stereotype.
Here at Temple, the reputation seems to be that we are filled with hipsters. We have a large number of art-affiliated, culturally diverse, eco-friendly and intellectual group of students. This does not necessarily mean they are all hipsters. We are just trendsetters set in a metropolitan setting, so it's inevitable that we may be art and cultural involved.
Of course, in such a large university, there will be frat and sorority kids, jocks, foreigners, environmentalists, artistic, and the so on. But we seem to be known as the Diversity University because you will meet people with absolutely different cultural backgrounds, beliefs, and values.
I believe that frat kids are individuals that are looked at as people who only look to party, and arent looking to be successful as far as school goes. I completley disagree, and believe they are hard working individuals because not only are they dealing with school, but their frat as well.
It seems like everyone just wants to party. They also seem pretty unfriendly; no one meets or participates in class.
there are a few stereotypes one is asians travel in packs.
its somewhat true.
another is there is no stereotype. Temple is like a pot of diversity, and every one is different. there's not a majority race, or gender preference. the students are all very nice, and help each other out.
Temple University is full of stereotypes...in a good way! There is literally every type of person on this campus. Hipsters, athletes, Greek men and women, foreign students, artists, mathletes, you name it, we have it. This is one of the reasons Temple is such a great place to go. No matter what you interest or way of life, you are bound to find a group of people who you fit in with. Also, it makes college more interesting because you never surrounded by the same people. It is definitely an awesome and unique way to become cultured.
At Temple University, there are so many different types of stereotypes floating around campus, generally pertaining to what [the student] is involved in. If [the student] is involved in sports, more specifically, football or basketball, they are essentially jocks; though, the "frats" are fairly well - known around campus as well. If you are in a "frat," you will be known as a "frat" kid. Think of a typical stereotype universally used, and I guarantee that it could be found on Temple's campus, somewhere.
There is no stereotype of the students because the school is very diverse
There are too many students for there to be any stereotype of all Temple students. Temple is very diverse and I don't feel as if I have ever been stereotyped.
Temple University is located in North Philadelphia, which is an area that has a pretty bad reputation for not being the safest of areas. Temple is also known for having an extremely diverse student body, and therefore many racial minorities. These two factors give Temple students a reputation for being "ghetto." While North Philly is no Society Hill, our student body is in fact very diverse, and students have been extremely successful in all areas. The campus is extremely safe and well lit, but when you go too far off campus at night you take your own chances. I would not say that the stereotype is entirely accurate.
There is a stereotype that many of the students at Temple didn't get into more prestigious colleges and will most likely become 5th years seniors.
The stereotype for Temple kids is that they love to party. This is true to an extent. I was placed in a dorm last year with three other girls. One was a partier like myself. The other two were more quiet and conserved. On my floor, there were definitely an array of people that partied, smoked, joined frats and sororities, and just sat in the room. Temple has great parties, but you can also find a great tech center if you are the type of person that wants to spend their Friday night catching up on homework. Over all, there is a pretty good mix of races here too.
You'll be hard pressed to find any sort of stereotypical student at Temple. Every student seems to have their own identity. Jocks, frat kids, stoners, geeks, artists, gamers, musicians, skaters, punks, goths, black, white, indian, asian, latino, you name it, we got it. With 25,000 undergrads, you're sure to find a place at the Diversity University.
Everyone thinks that Temple University is a safety school for people in the Philadelphia Area. This is certainly not true. People have a stereotype of Temple being a less then qualified school, but when statistics are put into play they are far from wrong. Temple has one of the best Business and Art schools in the NATION. They are known internationally for their incredible achievements. On top of that all of the other colleges within Temple have incredible professors with some of the most advanced degrees in the world. The Honors program at Temple only accepts top tier students and these students get special advantages when it comes to picking classes and living arrangements. People assume that since so many students are accepted to Temple that they are not a credible University, but again this is just a misconception. Not everyone is accepted to Temple. On top of this Temple attracts students from all over the world and country. So when someone says that Temple University is only a safety school maybe you should let them know some of these things to get that misconception out of their mind.
It is diversity. It is blended in. It is like melting pot. There are many races in my college Temple..
It is diversity. It is blended in. It is like melting pot. There are man races in college.
A typical stereotype is that Temple University is ghetto and the school is for kids that couldn't get into a bigger school. This is the farthest from the truth. I transferred into Temple in my Sophomore year and was amazed how wrong I actually was in my own personal stereotypes. I am in Fox Business school and was blow away how competitive and fast paced it is. I came from a private university, and Temple blew away my other school in toughness and how much I have learned. I have seen kids transfer in from Penn St, West Chester, Pitt, etc. And every single one of them gets a brand new opinion of the school and how good it is the first day they are there. Now for the ghetto part. Temple is considered the most diverse school in the country, period. There is people from all over the world, kids with all kinds of background, and difference among peers everywhere you look. Some may think that is bad, but why? I have experienced a culture at Temple unlike any other and I would not change that for the world.
You can find any type of personality on campus at Temple but we do have a lot of skinny jean wearing, gauge pierced hipsters on campus. However, they just add to the vibrancy of campus. I love walking to class watching people playing music or strolling by a bunch of guys petitioning to stop violence against women. You will definitely be able to find a group to fit in with here no matter what you're in to.
There are stereotypes regardless of where you will go. At TU there are plenty, some true and some false, but we are no different in that sense from any other campus.
