Don't be fooled by Temple. I went here because the Fox school of business seemed good and the buildings where state of the art. But, when your in, they push you aside…YOUR JUST A NUMBER. I remember reading the negative reviews about Temple and simply disregarded them, especially the ones about students being attacked. I'm a football player, 6'3 264 pounds and just figured all these victims where little, puny, and just stupid so I just disregarded them. I assumed that there was no way I would ever get jumped/ attacked. I was wrong. I did what the school, and students say to do (because its north philly, its not Princeton) and STAY IN A GROUP and WALK ALONG BROAD. I was in a group of 5 guys (all about my size) walking along Broad on campus, and were jumped for no reason. A neighborhood kid was just looking for a fight. So he spotted us out and then got his boys and anyone he could get, to jump us. FIGHTS AT TEMPLE AREN'T JUST ONE VS. ONE… THEY ALWAYS HAVE A GANG MENTALITY AND FIGHT IN NUMBERS, AND IF THAT DOESN'T WORK, THEY GOT A GUN. JUST READ A PAPER. THEY GO FOR BLOOD. Five guys jumped on me and the rest on my friends. (not only was this happening, Temple POLICE just drove by… they are just rent-a-cops and only care about their paycheck) Long story short, they fled into the subway and we were rushed to the hospital. (by the way, they $ you even if you were jumped on campus… ya $5453.87 later). The police did nothing except point out that a couple were TEMPLE upperclassmen that were involved and simply brushed this aside. Im glad I'm out of Temple. 3 out of my 4 professors couldn't speak English. and the social life is not what I expected… You walk around for hours in the ghetto looking for parties (bring your wallet, they charge) and then you finally found one. You get in and there are 200 frosh standing around a keg in a rundown frat house. Overall, my classes were a joke, and the kids are ghetto or just trying to be ghetto. If you want to go and spend 36000 a year to truly live in "the hood", Temple is for you. The sirens and gunshots just really put you to sleep!
responseSounds like the place has gone south since I went there three years ago…if those guys were Temple people way wasn't this brought up to the Disciplinary office? People have been thrown out for far less.
