I come from a suburban area in New Jersey. In high school I guess I was seen as the "artsy" type. I partied in high school. I did not want to come to Temple at ALL but due to financial reasons, this is where I ended up. I hate this school. To start, there are so many IDIOTS that go here because it is a state school with a high acceptance rate. The majority of the student body seems completely unfriendly and I've heard many other people say that it is difficult to meet people especially if you don't within the first week. The faculty here (excluding some teachers) are the rudest people I have ever encountered. Everyone that works here acts like you are bothering them when asking them a simple question. It creates a poor atmosphere for the school. The parties here suck despite the reputation it has for being a great party school.

On a positive note I think that the campus is really cool and the food isn't bad. The football games are fun if you are into that kind of thing.

In the time that I've been here there have been two shootings on Broad street (very close to my residence hall)

but overall this school was a horribly choice for me and if you aren't an insane partier or a jock DON'T COME HERE. Also DO NOT come here if you care about having IDIOTS in your classes. NORTH PHILLY SUCKS. Don't come to this school it sucks a shitload you'll be much happier somewhere else.

responseNot to be a grade-A snarker, but that's why people ride the subway south - there is nothing in North Philly but gross Chinese takeout stores, scummy Rite Aids, and hole-in-the-wall haircare joints run by Black Muslims. Go to South street, find a bar guide if you're drinking age, get a job south of Girard street.
responseTo be honest, it sound like your blaming Temple for your not making friends because your probably a douche bag/ people don't like you. I from Connecticut and I didn't know a single person at Temple when I came and I had no trouble making friends (and continuing to make friends for that matter). I am neither an insane partier nor, nor am I jock (whatever the hell that is) and I love TU. And, I would say, all and all, kids at TU are fairly smart. Ive met WAY more idiots at Villanova and UPENN and those are schools with low acceptance rates. (And UPENN and Drexel are in much worse areas then Temple.)
