Temple University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (17)
I love Temple. The size and location of Temple opened up a great deal of opportunities. I appreciate the diversity and community environment that Temple has. Because it is a large university, administrative issues can take a while. For example, seeing a CLA counselor could take hours. However, I felt this was a small price to pay for the great experience I had there.
Choosing to go to Temple U was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Their program was fantastic, classes were engaging and I met some great people who I have been best friends with ever since.
I attended Temple University after transferring there for my junior year. I was able to transfer without losing any time and was able to graduate on my original schedule. I transferred to Temple because I found it to be a great value for the money, and also allowed to to commute via public transportation. During my time at Temple, I also studied abroad in Rome, Italy, which I feel was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The education I received is top-notch and I feel prepared for my career. Since graduation in 2012, I have worked in my field and even returned to Temple to pursue my Master's degree. As far as I am concerned, there was no better choice for me than Temple.
The business program is amazing, but very extensive, and certainly not easy. I had a lot of fun with it but it took an extra year because of the work load. Be prepared.
The department of Urban Education at Temple contains a faculty that is both cognizant of the real world challenges facing students and exemplary in their field as researchers and educators. I feel that the courses I have taken in this department have prepared me for teaching in the urban setting. When I compare myself to other teachers who have not had the benefit of this program, I see I wide gap in knowledge and undersanding of both mico and macro level issues. I have also networked with teachers and educators in my field in a way that have benefitted my career and my personal life. I wouldn't study any place else!
I attended Temple for 2 years after transferring from another university. the College of Education's website can sometimes be out of date, so it is best to seek important information from advisers in-person. However, beyond that, I was very pleased with the quality and notoriety of Temple's secondary education program and the university as a whole.
Bad neighborhood, but safe campus. Easy access to campus. Supportive teachers. Informative.
I've enjoyed attending Temple University because of its location and convenience to my home. There are some great professors that I have had the chance to take classes with. Also, the campus has been undergoing major renovations and improvements, thus making the entire university more updated, modern, and technologically-advanced.
Had a lot of fun and met some incredible people. Sadly, I didn't pay enough attention to the professional aspect and didn't end up in my field of study. If I were to do it over, I would create more of a balance of the social and educational aspects that this great university offers.
Temple University is a large university with a smaller on-campus feel. Depending on your interests, this school can provide you with a lot of experience outside of school because it is so close to downtown Philadelphia. It also has a large alumni network in Philly which makes getting a job in Philly easier.
