Temple University Reviews
Temple is a wonderful school. It not only provides me with excellent academics, but it gives me so many resources and opportunities! The student body is diverse, which gives me an opportunity to interact with others and expand upon my thinking. Another thing Temple really pushed me to travel and go abroad. The campus provides many resources such as the technology center, tutoring center, counseling, mock interviewing, etc etc. The resources keep expanding as well as the campus. The new library will be finished shortly! In just the short 2 years I have spent at Temple, it has given me so much. My professors push me to be a better person/ student in and out of the classroom
I am currently a transfer student and I am currently in my junior year there. So far it’s great. The campus is nice, and very clean. It is also very very diverse! Since I am a Muslim girl , it was very easy to blend in since there was so much diversity. It is quite a large university and it gives you so much potential to grow with its opportunities that are available to you. One thing that I wish they had was more online courses. I am an English major and surprisingly they don’t have any online courses. I work full time so I wasn’t able to take much classes because everything was on campus. I hope they are able to make it available in the future for students who are independent and has to make a living and is also trying to get an education. Overall, I am happy I chose Temple, and I will be hopefully graduating with a Masters from there. Hope this helps!
I have only yet to experience one year at Temple University, but I have already experienced so much of the Temple community. Great campus! The campus may be my favorite part about the university. Very clean, lots of stores and places to grab a bite, quiet places to study, large library, wide range of academics and amenities, and an overall good environment. I have always had a little bit of a hard time studying and doing well on my exams, but with the help of my professors at Temple I was able to receive all A's and B's this past semester. Very pleased to be attending Temple University and recommend the school to high school and transfer students.
