I attended the Fox School of Business and I can say that it was a good decision! The strength of the program is definately the professors. I also found my classmates to be good peers. TU is a very diverse place so this was my first time being in a class with students from far away places like Russia and Nigeria. There is also a strong contingent from Philly so it keeps things interesting. The course work is well laid out and exposes the student to many different disciplines. The coursework also can be rigorous at times. After Wharton, I think that Fox is the next best choice for business education in Philly. I didn't get to attend classes in the new building but it looks fantastic! Perhaps one of the best things about attending Temple is that it is a school of the future. It just keeps getting better all of the time! I was surprised to go back and visit on a warm day and with the new buildings and warm sun, I thought that I was in California at UCSD or UCLA! I also saw tour groups of potential students and their families making comments like… "Wow"! "I never would have thought!". As far as what I would have done differently? I think that I would have remained more focus in my senior year in high school. Once I made my college choice I started playing around in high school and became lackadasical. Entering college I was way too laid-back about things. I found myself having to catchup and was really a shining star at Temple until my junior year when I hit stride again. Be prepared to work hard because Fox students are more like working professionals. I noticed other students from liberal arts studies and the like having a good time with their easier course load. So high school students and tranfers coming to Temple, stay focused and intense! Get deep into your studies. Hang around brainiac types. Keep your computer skills and math skills at a high level. Also TU and Fox offer great programs such as Study Abroad and many clubs. I worked a part-time job while at Temple which is also good because you meet a ton of people doing that. After awhile I couldn't walk across campus without 75 or so people I knew waving or smiling at me! I really did and still do feel at home at Temple U! One other thing that I should mention is that Temple has a very liberal feel to it. It's a big state school in a big city location. It's great to be in Philly where you can visit and even party at other nearby schools! The park system is very nice and downtown has great attractions and is very walkable. During the semester you never run out of things to do at TU. During the summer I used to hang downtown. Oh and yes, take summer classes to keep up or get ahead. Temple offers a huge number of summer classes. Heck, you might even graduate early! And business students, keep going after you graduate and get your MBA. I took a huge break and just finished mines. I majored in International Business … great stuff!
