Students choose Temple because opportunities abound here. With our location in the heart of Philadelphia and our 17 schools and colleges, there’s space for an art student to find his way into dentistry. There’s opportunity for science and technology students to design practical programs that are put to use by Temple and local organizations. And there’s the chance for engineers-in-training to think beyond the grade, creating innovations—like a lighter, less expensive prosthetic hand and sidewalks that generate solar power—that have real potential to improve lives.

We pride ourselves on nurturing this enterprising spirit in all of our students, regardless of their area of study, and we see real results. Meet a recent alumna and current student who are already making an impact in the world.
