You might say Temple is a meeting ground for a universe of ideas, attitudes, and experiences. There are students from just about any place or any background you can think of. They’re all different with one thing in common: the desire to be their best and make things happen. This is Temple—diversity creating wholeness. Individualism leading to mutual accomplishment. Using today to get a head start on tomorrow. That’s what it means to be Temple Made.
Main Campus is fewer than two miles from downtown Philadelphia, the second-largest city on the East Coast. It’s a short ride to everything great Philly has to offer, like the Phillies’ ballpark, world-class museums and performance centers, and amazing restaurants everywhere you turn. Make Philly your classroom by taking advantage of hands-on learning and internships in business, healthcare, education, the arts, and more. Visit CampusPhilly.org to find out more.
