    I've made a lot out of my experience at Temple so far. Even though I'm a freshman, a lot has happened in Philadelphia especially because of the past election. I have gone to many events and been a part of many things I would not have if I went to a smaller school in a rural or suburban area.

    Compared to many schools, Temple is fairly inexpensive, but their goal is still to make a profit off of you. I recommend not buying any courseware from the bookstore. As for what you get in return, that is up to you and how much work you are willing to put into your education. Learn all you can, get involved, and take advantage of career services and fairs - you are paying for it, after all. Do this, and it is definitely a worthwhile investment.

    Definitely consider off campus housing! I currently live in Chinatown, Philadelphia PA. It costs a lot less and you get to experience the city in a way you would not have other wise. Because of how involved the students at Temple are, you can still get that social vibe you were looking for.
