    As someone who was a prospective student who then decided to attend Temple University, I highly recommend that prospective students visit the campus. I say this because Temple is big, busy, and beautiful. The best way to know if you want to come to Temple, and to get to know Temple, is by visiting. It exposes you the campus, you're given a tour, and it provides information a website or another person could never communicate to you.

    Get involved. Rugby made a huge difference for me. I wouldn't have graduated without it. Study abroad. Temple itself has some great programs and you don't have to worry about credits transferring. But if none of their programs work, you can do an external program and get the courses approved so they fit. ANYONE can study abroad. I have seen bio-majors, business majors, theater majors, everyone can study abroad.

    My greatest piece of advice would be the first semester is always the hardest, but you will survive! If you aren't from a big, urban city like Philadelphia, things can be very overwhelming... at first! Stick it out and give it a fair chance, especially at Temple. Another tip, which applies to all universities, tour the school before going! This is so important because this allows you to get a feel for the campus layout and atmosphere, which will help you pick the school that is best for you.

    When I first started applying to colleges, I thought I wanted the experience that a small college would give me. I went to a small college, but then transferred to Temple. I found that I preferred the options and flexibility that a large school can offer me. A small school might have one or two sections of a certain course, while a place as big as Temple might have more than ten. You might have some large classes, but once you get into more specialized courses, most classes have less than 30 students. I also thought I didn't want to be in an urban environment, but now I love it. Temple is only a short subway ride to center city Philadelphia, but is also in a less chaotic environment. Temple is known to be in a poor area of town, but you never really feel unsafe.
