Temple University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (32)
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 the College of Education's website can sometimes be out of date, so it is best to seek important information from advisers in-person.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.
Going to college was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was able to study a subject I loved, and for the first time in my life I got good grades because I was passionate about what I was studying. I learned to be independent, learned time management, and met some fantastic people who will be my lifelong friends.
Temple was a very good school. The learning environment and teaching staff were a great influence on my experience.
Many working professionals, seeing as classes were held in the evenings and/or had online components to them too.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Temple. It is a diverse and humble school that really caters to everyone. While some of its institutions, such as the financial aid office, were not as efficient as they could be, Temple always made me feel at home. I had excellent professors and learned an excellent mix of "book knowledge" and "street knowledge". I loved the honors psychology program and the general university honors programs. They provided a small-school feeling with all the benefits of the big university. I do wish, however, that there were more counselling options and experiences in the psychology program, as opposed to research experiences. The research psychology aspect at Temple is very well developed, but it would be nice to offer jobs/internships/senior projects more catered to those interested in clinical psychology.
Temple is a very unique and diverse school. You will meet every type of person from every type of background, but that's what makes it so unique. All the different nationalities and backgrounds blend together to become one family. Temple offers limitless opportunities to get involved within the university and in the community, it is just up to you to take initiative. They will guide you and help you grow, but you must want to do so. Located in the heart of Philadelphia, the community and surrounding area is involved in every aspect of this university. Plus, you will never be bored. As for the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management, it is top notch. It provides you hands on experiences, with challenging curriculum. The professors become mentors and some even become family. Having already graduated, I understand the value of this education I have. I feel well prepared to do a good job in my career with the position I am in. My school was able to help me gain internships and connections within the industry, which eventually led to my job with Aramark. I am proud to be a Temple Owl, and I think you will be too.
