    Visit this campus before you decide to go here, because it will be a huge factor in whether or not this campus is the right fit for you. Also don't be scared off by the fact that the main campus is in North Philadelphia. It's not scary and should not intimidate anyone.

    Apply for housing as soon as possible, available dorm rooms run out very fast. Know that Temple University does not make your class schedule, you will have to do it yourself for each semester. Temple puts a lot of emphasis on being a self-sufficient and independent person; help is available, but only if you ask for it.
