As a person who grew up in a small town I could think of nothing better than heading out to a city full of opportunity to continue my education. I was very disappointed upon arrival. I guess I had over estimated the amount of possibilities that Temple could offer. Being in North Philadelphia is not where the action is happening. Aside from various house parties in the local surrounding dangerous blocks round campus, there is not that much to do around campus at night, unless you plan on going somewhere with a group of people.

I expected to come to college and feel liberated, but I feel trapped here because the only place to shop that is in walking distance is rite aid, and you can never go anywhere by yourself really any time at night.

The education here is good, but my major, Tourism and Hospitality management at Temple offers a lot of programs that partner with many different businesses in Philadelphia and for someone who realized that Philadelphia is not for her, this really just is upsetting because when you're scared you cannot take advantage of these opportunities.

Next year I am transferring to a more suburban campus in search for a more "college" experience. Overall Temple is a good school, but be sure you're in love with Philadelphia before you decide on making Temple your college choice.
