Temple University Reviews
This semester, Temple began with a mix of all-in-person, hybrid, and online courses. Unfortunately, after the first week all students, with the exception of students studying at Temple University Hospital, switched to a completely-online platform that is projected to persist through the end of the semester. Though both students and faculty are struggling to adapt to online learning, the professors at Temple have been understanding with assignment deadlines, absences, etc. I could not be more grateful to have such a supportive staff!
I liked that Temple University respects students and is a proud leader for diversity on campus and within the university. While respecting staff and students, Temple really follows by their mission statement. Temple is totally inclusive and accepting of all genders, races, and represents other minorities and ethnicities with their fun clubs! It's really easy to participate with activities on campus, there's just so much going on with clubs, groups, and other organizations to join!
Temple University was an amazing school filled with people of different backgrounds. Everyone is kind, diverse, and willing to be adventurous. The city provides an easy escape from the party scene as there are many adventurous activities to do in the city. Plus, talk about the best cheese steaks! Jim's or D'Alessandros steaks are the best. I talk about the social life first because a student who goes to school in Philly can get caught up in everything that happens in a city which can distract them from having a good time. At first, I was nervous to go to Temple with it being in north Philly, but it turned out to be the best four years I could have ever asked for and a lot had to deal with my friends I made and all the activities to do. Furthermore, the academics are good. I graduated with a 3.1 GPA while balancing my grades with a good social life. My major was Kinesiology and I had to take chemistry, physics, biology, and other hard classes, but I managed and passed them all.
