  • Dec-28-2011 I am a current student here

    The area isn't very affluent, hence crime is a constant problem. I constantly fear being robbed or held at gunpoint due to the ubiquitous occurrences. The athletic activities are incredible and a lot of fun to watch though.

    I love Temple. There is no other place with a strong sense of family and support with anyone that is a part of the Temple family. Whether it is at a sports game or while studying, it is enjoyable to feel like you are a part of a bigger family. It also helps that Temple provides many fun activities and clubs that are easy to get involved in.

    With there so much to do for so less in the heart of Philadelphia, one will enjoy being a Temple Owl. There are over 200 student organizations to chose from to meet different people and to get involved in what your interests are. There is always something to do at Temple University. You will never get bored of it.

    I enjoy being here quite a bit. The fact that the school is in Philadelphia is awesome. Most college students just have the campus. Temple students have the campus AND Philadelphia. There are plenty of cool places to go all over the city. I have had a lot of fun, cultural experiences. Unlike at other schools, you don't have to be into partying to have fun. Temple's location provides you with a unique experience. The only down side is that the areas directly surrounding campus can be a little sketchy. Stay on campus, and you are fine.

    With over 200 group organizations and the many events that happen in campus you will never be bored!!! I am in 4 organizations and believe me when i tell you i am enjoying all of them. Not only has it given me a chance to make new friends but it will also encourage you to do better in classes. Its not an utopian society you will have some rude people but its life. Temple keeps me on my toes plus there is also something going all. Whether it be a prep-rally for the big game or a concert, you will never be bored...unless you choose to be.
