I think Temple is centered in an okay location. Although the school is divided. There is a stigma now among professors. Many think that the school is becoming like a community college because of the acceptance rate of transfer and intercity kids. As such will underestimate students as having no intellectual merit. You will find that many think Temple should go in a research focused direction and that only traditional students should be accepted. Although you will see teachers like that. You will find honest professors believing a University should be a resouce that is open for those that want to learn and challenge themselves at the college level. Those professors will push students to be the best and don't assume that every student comes from the same background. Temple students that have gone through and succeded hold the Temple motto with the highest regard. Perservence Wins!

Temple provides so much for their students and I know that the faculty wants its students to succeed. It is so easy to get involved at Temple because there are over 300 clubs! It was so easy for me even as a transfer student to get involved. Temple also has many academic/professional resources such as academic advising and the career center. Professors have flexible office hours which is really convenient for students. There are always activities to do on campus to keep the students busy and entertained, and they are fun. Temple takes care of its students and I am very thankful to go to this school.

It was so easy for me even as a transfer student to get involved. I am actually now the president of my majors club on campus.
