I feel Temple is special and truly loved my time there. One feature that particularly attracted me to the school was the diversity. Coming from a small town in upstate New York, it was really important for me to go somewhere that I could meet people with different backgrounds, cultures, and opinions. That type of exposure is really influential to a young person. I remember feeling homesick my freshman year -- only to be comforted by my international friends. Beyond the diversity, Temple's location in Philadelphia is amazing. Philadelphia is brimming with history, culture, and a unique character but is still manageable in terms of size and cost. The academic environment was wonderful, the campus felt like home, and I will forever be a proud Temple alum.

Temple began in the 1880s as a night school for ambitious young adults in Philadelphia, so adopting the wise, nocturnal owl as its mascot seems fitting. The institution has since grown into a large, public, urban university serving a diverse student body. Nearly a quarter of undergrads come from outside of Pennsylvania, and minority students number more than 40 percent. Around 80 percent of Temple students live off campus (though freshmen who want a spot in university housing usually can get one), but don’t worry – there are hundreds of clubs and events that bring students together outside of the classroom, including cheering on Temple’s Division I athletic teams. It’s virtually impossible to talk about Temple without discussing the city of Philadelphia. Center City Philadelphia, less than two miles from campus. It’s a hub for shopping, business, and city life. The possibilities are immense – from professional sporting events to museums to restaurants for any taste. Without doubt, Temple students never need to feel isolated or bored.
Philadelphia also serves as a real-world campus for academic research projects and internships, and the Temple’s career center team is eager to help students find valuable experiences to support post-graduation goals. Temple also conducts on-campus job fairs, mock interviews, and resume critiques. Alumni rave about Temple’s virtual networking hours – 60-minute events that allow Owls from everywhere to connect.
