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.
Tyler School of Art provides a rigorous program that creates successful and well rounded students. Throughout my time at Tyler, my professors pushed me. I developed skills that made me a self advocate, and a marketable individual. The professors genuinely want to see their students succeed. I grew both as an artist and an educator during my time at Tyler. My professors helped me to advance my skills and write a excellent resume. I immediately obtained a job in my field of study after graduating from Tyler. I would highly recommend Tyler's BFA program, as well as their art education program.
Temple University provides students with a quality education and a diverse, supportive community. Any prospective student who strongly considers this Philadelphia university and the exciting programs that it has to offer will not regret his or her decision. Grasp the reigns of your future, and become a Temple Owl!
Though the liberal arts core curriculum can feel a bit tedious, the program overall I enjoyed very much. I met many professors while there that have helped me shape what I wanted to go to graduate school for, and have given me counseling and advice that is beyond any monetary value. In general, I enjoyed the different kinds of courses available too.
