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 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.
I loved Temple University! Temple is a top academic institution, has over 140+ majors to choose from, is in the center of Philadelphia, with many alumni continuing to work in Philadelphia. Temple has a great support system, with students and teachers always willing to help. Did I mention the food options at Temple are great! There's food trucks lined up at every street! Temple University is the place to be. It is an investment you will not regret. It is an investment you will definitely reap the benefits from. It is an honor to be "Temple Made."
