Temple University Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about Temple University?


There is nothing that frustrates me about Temple. I loved being a student at this university.


The most frustrating thing about my school is the lack of free time. But this is only due to my major, which is my choice. I wish I had a few more days to meet new people and try new things. The only other things is the lunch lines are a bit long sometimes, but the food is usually worth the wait.


I often find food options difficult for me to find. As a vegetarian, the only options are often high in carbohydrates and low in vegetable and fruit options.


The most frustrating part of Temple University is the attitude of some of the students, with the idea that they cannot do something. A good amount of students are happy getting a C in a class, which is not the point of college. The point of college is to learn all one can before going into the job market. The point is not to be perfect at a subject, but to become proficient, by any means. This means studying a little extra or doing additional research.


The most frustrating thing would probably be the cost of books for our classes because many are made specifically for Temple classes which means we cannot buy another edition that may be cheaper.


Temple is a school that exists in the midst of North Philadelphia. It serves as not only a University but also as an umbrella to different departments and conservatories. Often these branches of the whole were made to compete for funding rather than work as one body. They aren't given the frequent means to communicate with each other and so there was the occasional grudge or general animosity. It was somewhat frustrating as the solution felt fairly obvious but was left neglected.


Some classes can be too large and interaction with the professor can be limited, hindering student ability to showcase their full talent and potential.


Trying to navigate through all of the administrative rules and policies.


At Temple University we strive as a community to be our own individuals sharing a diversity of characteristics which brings a sense of connectedness -- it gives life to our nickname, "Diversity University."
