For the purpose of being completely honest, my main motivation for going to Temple University was based on the very large scholarship I received. I had applied to over 10 schools, and had not anticipated going here. But even though my decision was based on personal finances, if I had known then what I know now, I may have been willing to pay the full out-of-state price. I really love this university. The people are extremely nice, and for someone who visits private catholic colleges often, I can guarantee that Temple students are much nicer. The academics are challenging, especially if you're in the honors program, but the challenge is always to your benefit. There is not a ton of mandatory work, but the work that you are given is always graded and is an good assessment of your knowledge of the subject matter. The dorms are about a 7/10 in terms of comfort, but the lack of wireless in certain dorms is frustrating. There is always new construction, and its exciting to walk into Alter Hall (the main Business School building) which is new as of 2008 and is gorgeous inside and out. I believe 3 or 4 new buildings will be completed in the next couple years. The social life is very good at Temple, and while partying off campus is an option, the sheer volume of people and the its proximity to Center City, Philadelphia assures that being bored on weekends is difficult. The only gripes I have is with the safety off campus. It is a problem, and going off campus at night in North Philly can be risky depending on where you go. However, that should not detract from the excellence of the rest of the college.
