I was very impressed by the students and the culture at Temple. Everybody is so passionate about what they do and they are supportive of each other. The work ethic of the students is extremely motivating. The opportunities to hold leadership positions in student organizations as a freshman is very important.

Freshman · Nursing

All the professors want you to succeed. They are all so personable and helpful. Some schools will over accept students into a major, making it more competitive to pass through and weeds out students, but NOT here at Temple. The professors really care about your learning! The main campus program board does an amazing job of organizing free events that are super fun and have amazing food always. The campus is gorgeous and safe, housing is spacious and comfortable.
