    It sucks that I'm going to be in debt about $80,000 (out of state but with a scholarship) once I get out of here, but Temple isn't that expensive compared to a lot of other similar schools. All college is expensive. I'm learning a lot and loving the experience of studying in Philly, so I'd say it's worth it.

    Temple is great bang for the buck! As a state school tuition is far less than any comparable private college. Financial aid is crucial for many students, myself included, and the office of Student Financial Services is a helpful resource. the quality of education for the money is top notch!

    As a state school, it is not terribly expensive. Compared to some others, even in the city, it is reasonably priced. Although they are not incredibly generous with financial aid, the total cost is fair considering the quality of education, location, and student resources available. Beware that some activities cost extra and that the schools in it you go to will have different prices. For example, the Business school's tuition is a few thousand more annually than the general studies tuition.

    They have a lot to offer, so definitely take advantage of every little thing you possible can because you're paying for it.
