"Attending Temple University was a great experience. Because it is located in the heart of a major city as well as the reputation that Temple carries in every field, the opportunities to gain real world experience while pursuing your education are boundless. Also, I could not have asked for a more supportive faculty. I didn't expect that given the size of the university, but I was pleasantly surprised and am endlessly thankful."

"I love Temple. The size and location of Temple opened up a great deal of opportunities. I appreciate the diversity and community environment that Temple has. Because it is a large university, administrative issues can take a while. For example, seeing a CLA counselor could take hours. However, I felt this was a small price to pay for the great experience I had there."

"I attended Temple University after transferring there for my junior year. I was able to transfer without losing any time and was able to graduate on my original schedule. I transferred to Temple because I found it to be a great value for the money, and also allowed to to commute via public transportation. During my time at Temple, I also studied abroad in Rome, Italy, which I feel was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The education I received is top-notch and I feel prepared for my career. Since graduation in 2012, I have worked in my field and even returned to Temple to pursue my Master's degree. As far as I am concerned, there was no better choice for me than Temple."

"Temple has a very well structured Occupational Therapy program. They offer in class learning along with hands on learning that allows for learning with application. They have a great network with a large support program. The program is located in a bustling city that has its pros and cons."

"African American studies program offers some of the best faculty in the discipline. Because of this, I am able to actively engage with other top-notch scholars in the discipline-creating an atmosphere where I am constantly learning new theories, ideologies, and paradigmatic analysis which allow me to contribute greatly to the discipline of African studies. The breadth of knowledge is both challenging yet invigorating, creating an environment that is exciting. The only thing that is missing from this program is the funding. Students may miss opportunities due to the lack of funding and scholarships available."

"The business program is amazing, but very extensive, and certainly not easy. I had a lot of fun with it but it took an extra year because of the work load. Be prepared."

"The department of Urban Education at Temple contains a faculty that is both cognizant of the real world challenges facing students and exemplary in their field as researchers and educators. I feel that the courses I have taken in this department have prepared me for teaching in the urban setting. When I compare myself to other teachers who have not had the benefit of this program, I see I wide gap in knowledge and undersanding of both mico and macro level issues. I have also networked with teachers and educators in my field in a way that have benefitted my career and my personal life. I wouldn't study any place else!"

"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."

"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."

"As a part-time social work student at Temple University, I am very busy. As a social work student with a full-time job, two classes, and two mandatory internships (one each year) which must include 15 to 18 hours a week, you have a very packed schedule. A number of students I know could not manage a full-time job with an internship and classes and dropped their hours at work from full-time to part-time. If I had known what I was really getting into I may not have gone back to school. One of Temple's pros is the diversity in the classrooms. Another con is the crime ridden neighborhood that Temple resides in."

"The Pros of The School Psychology Program at Temple University include its scientist-practitioner model. I feel that this model of training emphasizes a thorough understanding of the science of psychology, enabling me to adapt and change in my profession. The research training serves to prepare students with a strong career in clinical science. Indeed, Temple University is one of the few institutions in the country to have all three of its Psychology programs accredited by the American Psychological Association. This is a huge advantage for students like me who wish to seek Licensure in Psychology post-graduation. However, like many other higher education programs in the United States where the exorbitant costs stymie a student's ability to escape out of debt, Temple University could do better with its financial aid packages and scholarships. With a full-time doctorate program underway, the last thing on my plate should be wondering when my next meal will be. So far, this is the only con of this program. Overall, I am very pleased with Temple University."
