Temple University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (35)
Temple University is a solid institution committed to the learning development of all students, but more importantly, students of color. I like the school because the faculty are very well-versed in their field and use their networks to help students get jobs. The journalism school gives students a well rounded education and teaches them audio, photo and video production. As a former journalism student, I learned how to write, edit and shoot video which put me ahead of my competition for jobs on tv and radio because I had all the skills necessary in the field, rather than a specific specialty.
Temple University is an affordable school for in-state students, and the School of Social Work is a great place to earn your Bachelor of Social Work. Being a student in Philadelphia opens up many doors for work experience in social justice related fields, which is very valuable for future social workers. There are challenges within the undergraduate course work; the BSW Class of 2018 was caught in an often frustrating curriculum transition that was usually confusing and often overwhelming. Hopefully by the time future classes are enrolled, these wrinkles will be ironed out.
There is something for everyone at Temple University. There are over 140 majors offered to undergraduate students and plenty of minors as well. If a student has questions about a career path or having trouble choosing a major, there are advisers for every program that the students may speak to. They are always open minded and willing to help. Apart from academics, Temple University also offers many clubs and organizations that students can participate in. This gave us a chance to meet new people who might have similar interests and also gave us a chance to network. With all the diversity, being placed in the beautiful city of Philadelphia and having great academics, Temple University provided me with an amazing Undergraduate experience.
The college of education at Temple University did an excellent job preparing me for the career of my dreams. The advisors were patient and always willing to sit down and discuss your frustrations, anxiety, and class schedule. Being at such a large institution can be very overwhelming and is important to create a good rapport with all staff to ensure you get the support you need. I had professors that were willing to go above and beyond to make sure I received the understanding and support I needed to excel in my career. In my undergraduate education, I most importantly learned that you are your biggest advocate and you must speak up in order to receive all that you need to excel. College is designed to prepare you for the real world but it is up to YOU to get all that you need from your University. I am grateful I had the opportunity to attend such a prestigious college and program where I had access to all facets of learning, which molded me into the teacher I am today. I was so pleased with all the options and opportunities that Temple University provided I despised to go back to earn my masters degree. College is a great experience and life lesson that everyone should take advantage of.
Temple University provided me with the foundation of skills to be an effective educator in the classroom. Ritter, the school of Education is filled with professors that care for the success of their future teachers. My elementary education program gave me skills that I was able to use in the classroom. Also, the most effective part of the program was completing field hours and student teaching because you got to work in a real classroom setting.
Temple University is ver diversified when it comes to students, instructors, and staff. The school is great for students who loves the city life since Temple University is only a few minutes away from Philadelphia's downtown. Temple University has a great variety of programs.
My undergraduate degree taught me a lot at Temple University. With an undergraduate degree in health information systems, I feel as though I am knowledgeable on all of the background information of a hospital and how to properly run a healthcare facility. With this information, I plan to attend graduate school to obtain a master's degree in Speech Language Pathology and hope to one day open up my own rehabilitation facility. The knowledge and skills that I graduate with will help me in this process. Temple University is a great institution with a large diversity of students and many opportunities.
Temple is a really good school in regards to academics. The choices offered are excellent and up to date! The university makes a particular effort to stay on the edge of research advances in many domains. The labs equipment, rooms and staff are updated and conducive to learning! I have enjoyed my four year on main campus even as a non-traditional student (much older than most). I am still there now, working on a doctorate. It is hard work but pushing through... Even though the school is located in a poor area, the university is making huge improvements and is revitalizing the community. They are building new homes for students surrounding the campus . As well as building a new library, athletic facilities, dorms a long with adding a park in the middle of campus. Temple future is bright.
My degree program has excellent staff and faculty who are willing to drop anything and help a student in need. Their enthusiasm about the Communication Sciences and Disorders program is contagious and I believe they prepare us extremely well for graduate school life.
I am so happy to know that I graduated from Temple University. The university prepared me for real world situations with my social work degree. I feel knowledgeable on how to work with different populations and have the capability to help others with my skills from class and internship experiences.
