In 1884, Reverend Russell Conwell began tutoring a young man who could only study at night because of his job. It wasn't long before Conwell was teaching dozens of students in similar circumstances. He soon convinced the members of his congregation and others in the community to start "an Educational Institution intended primarily for the benefit of Working Men." In 1888, “The Temple College” received a charter of incorporation. The university has since evolved into one of the nation’s premier institutions for higher education.

Our 17 schools and colleges, nine campuses, hundreds of degree programs and more than 35,000 students combine to create one of the nation's most comprehensive and diverse learning environments. In neighborhoods, across disciplines and on a global stage, members of the Temple community are making things happen.

I transferred to Temple University in fall of 2016 and was very happy with my academic experiences there. The city was also amazing, with many things to see and explore.

Overall I...
