Darrell Carson - 8/9/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

"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."

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."
