Elizabeth Coffey - 8/29/2019
Degree:
Graduation Year: 2016
"I really enjoyed my time as an undergrad at Temple University. The professors I had were dedicated and seemed to be very knowledgeable on the topics they taught. Being in the honor's program allowed me a few benefits, such as higher quality instructors. While I feel like the school as a whole was good, it was evident that the university favored certain schools, such as Fox school of business, and provided them with better facilities and technology. I know that some facilities such as the library have been improved since I have graduated. In my department of Geography and Urban Studies, I wish there were a few changes. I do not feel like the importance of internships was conveyed enough, which put me at a disadvantage after graduation. Perhaps a mandatory internship class would be a helpful addition to the program. I also feel like importance of skills such as Geographic Information Systems was not emphasized enough, and again put me at a disadvantage when entering the work force. It seemed like every job I applied to listed this as a requirement. I think there could have been more assistance with financial aid, although I heard that it has improved since I graduated. The school offered a lot of opportunities to join clubs and provided networking opportunities. Overall, I would recommend both Temple University as a school, and the Geography and Urban Studies as a department. Overall, college is what you make of it and I think they give you the tools to succeed."

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2008
"Temple University is an amazing institution, filled with diversity, student life, and academics. Temple was not my first university. I was a transfer student from a smaller liberal arts college. When I arrived on campus, I immediately knew I was home. I worked with some of the most intellectually-engaging professors who challenged me to think, to grow and to strive for everything beyond what I could have imagined. Moreover, I forged strong, lasting friendships from a diverse group of amazing students from around the globe. While Temple is in the heart of North Philadelphia, the campus is protected by its own police force."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019
"Temple University really goes above and beyond to help students in any way possible. From providing sensible financial aid to work study opportunities and internships, Temple guides the path to a personalized method to manage the cost of attendance. Temple University is a large institution which offers large and small lecture sizes for students. As a student of the College of Science and Technology I even received one-on-one help from graduate students in other science programs. Furthermore, even as an undergraduate I had the chance to work in a research lab, which is not offered at every institution."

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2019
"Temple University works closely with students in a studio environment. The professors care about the success of the students and strive to help even outside of regular classroom. Temple provides close connections with former alumni working in the field, as well as the Architecture community in Philadelphia."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014
"Attending Temple University was a very great experience for me. I had great supports as far as professors and academic advisors, as well as the financial aid office. My classes were on campus, and there were shuttle services available if you did not want to drive to other classes that were only offered at different campuses. I feel as though I learned very well from the program, especially during internships and externships in my final year. This gave me on the job training, and helped me to prepare for a career."

"Temple University is a thriving urban campus with a historical commitment to education. What started out as a night school for adults has blossomed into a leader among higher education. I am one of fourteen family members to graduate from Temple and I am proud to forever be an owl."

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2012
"Temple University provided with me an excellent undergraduate education. I can honestly say that the majority of my professors genuinely cared about their students and wanted to see them succeed. There were plenty of educational events, campus activities, and so many others opportunities for students to meet others and help them get involved. I had a great experience attending Temple University."

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2018
"The first time I attended Temple University I fell in love with the atmosphere. People were constantly on the move and I love to stay busy so this fit perfect with my lifestyle. I chose to study Kinesiology, in order to pursue my dream of becoming an Occupational Therapist. Although I know I needed to go back to school after my undergrad, some people in my program did not intend on ever going back. With this being their plan, they did not have a lot of options when trying to find a full-time job, unless you plan on being a personal trainer, etc.."

Emma Blackson - 5/16/2018
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018
"I would recommend Temple University specifically the College of Public Health. Over the past three years, through coursework in public health at Temple University, I have acquired considerable knowledge regarding health inequities and policy. I was enrolled in Politics and Payments in the US Healthcare System in my third year. It was there that my love for policy and equity grew. It was taught by Dr. Christen Rexing, who can only be described as a social justice warrior. Her class discussions on health policy, specifically on firearm injury, helped me to realize my passion for the subject. Additionally, during my senior year, I had the pleasure of partaking in an independent study led by Dr. Sharon Washington. This experience gave me the opportunity to expand my understanding of one of the origins of health disparities and how implementing policy changes could indeed change the course of health equity. I loved the opportunities I was presented during my time at Temple. I love the diversity of the student body because then you get different perspectives on how to solve some of the worlds most pertinent problems."
