"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."

"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."

"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."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2010
"My time at Temple University thought me a lot- both academically and introspectively. In my first year of undergraduate studies as a Psych-Gen Major, I had great difficulty with a statistics course. However, the difficulty I faced did not serve as a deterrent. Realizing that I would fail the course for that semester and adversely impact my cumulative GPA, my Student-Teacher/ professor and I came up with a contingency plan: make-up the course during a later semester to override the poor grade. In the interim, my professor and I met bi-weekly for tutoring sessions to prepare me for the anticipated make-up course/semester hours. During those tutoring sessions, we developed a backwards design review plan where we reviewed/studied the coursework and I took practice exams in hopes of my excelling during this second chance. A year later, I was ready to commit to the previously failed statistics course with an improved academic perspective-allowing me to pass the course. Overcoming that academic hardship convinced me to focus, allowing me to be successful in my Psychology Major Coursework in the final two years of my undergraduate career. I believe that hands-on initiative take by my professor and I in just a large University truly steered me back into academic focus. Thereafter, upon obtaining my undergraduate degree I shaped a professional path. In my previous workforce opportunity as a Human Resources Assistant, I strengthened my interpersonal skills and increased my work responsibilities through on-boarding newly acquired staff to our company's ever-changing policies. One of my major roles was to ensure newly hired staff understood, accepted and committed to the strategic mission and business transformation agenda in order to continuously build my organization. By in excelling in this competent of this role as of late October 2014, I grew into an ad-hoc manager. As an ad-hoc manager I supervised a young adult student in an internship capacity. As this high school students supervisor and main point of contact, I worked with her to develop her technical (job responsibilities and her usage of job tools), and professional skills (judgment, work efficiency, reliability, strengthening her willingness to learn- shaping her adaptability). This experience taught me how to effectively instruct and guide a young person in a way that is cross-functional and respectful. Outside of my professional path, in October 2014 I also begun to volunteer my Alma Mater. Temple University reached out to me, to become a Brand/ University ambassador. As an ambassador, I speak with prospective college students about my academic and social experiences while attending Temple as it has made a huge impact on me as I have been TEMPLE Made- Go Class of 2010.."

"Temple university provided me with opportunities to explore diversity across our campus and around the world. A required course, Race in America, provided me with the knowledge and skills needed in the current state of our country. The professors gave 100% for each individual and encouraged our success in practice. They spent time with us on an individual basis and allowed us to explore our career options without judgment. The assignments prepared me for my career as well as assisting with figuring out who I am as a professional. Overall, they provided a rigorous learning environment."

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2010
"My degree program was really good. The only drawback was that it was not drilled into me as a student to achieve more and network. In order to work as an SLP, I would need a masters degree. It's really tough to get into a program. Had I been aware of the competition, I would have worked harder to get a 4.0. That way, I would have looked better to graduate schools. Instead, I didn't et in to any programs I applied to, and I have not been working in the field I got my degree in. I am now in graduate school pursuing a degree in Human services, and I am happy. Just wish I knew then what I know now. Work hard and explore while in school!"
