Top Ten Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Temple…
(Advice from our Peer Advisors)
- Utilize the many resources available to you- utilize the Teaching Assistant’s (TA’s) and the Tutoring Center/ Writing Center. The TECH Center is an awesome resource too. If you need viruses taken off your computer, they do it for FREE.
- Take control of your education and plan ahead- Temple is a HUGE university. Visit offices like Student Financial Services and Advising during off-peak hours (hint: peak hours are typically during priority registration and the first two weeks of each semester. Check out the Academic Calendar for dates: http://www.temple.edu/registrar/documents/calendars/). Also, make friends with upperclassmen to help you navigate the university.
- Get involved in activities and clubs as soon as possible- take advantage of every opportunity (hint: consider joining an SPO: http://www.fox.temple.edu/org/).
- Take advantage of your student status- there are so many discounts that you can receive in the Philadelphia area just by having your Temple ID. SWEET!
- Check out other venues for books- use eBay, Amazon, book.ly or local bookstores in the Philadelphia area. College bookstores can be a rip off so renting textbooks or buying books from upperclassmen tend to be a heck of a lot cheaper.
- RATEMYPROFESSORS.com – love this!
- Center City is not hard or expensive to get to- if you’re losing your mind take a stroll down to Rittenhouse to relax. Also, become familiar with public transportation and if you have a car on campus, pay to have it in a secure lot.
- Dress for success- a suit is definitely a MUST, especially for Fox students.
- Know where to eat- food trucks are amazing and cheap (especially the crepe truck by Tyler). Sodexo and the Fresh Grocer are expensive for what they offer. The SAC is a little better than J&H Cafeteria because it offers smaller portions to help cut down on the “freshman 15”.
- Things will not be perfect your first semester- your schedule may not be how you want it to be and you may not have the ideal roommate. You may not love every class you have to take or enjoy every professor, but you’re in college and if you want to accomplish your goals, you have to learn how to cope. You can do it- we all did!!

As required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, Temple University cannot disclose a student’s education records without the written consent of a student or without proof that the student is the tax dependent of the parent.
FERPA provides the following rights for students and for the parents of dependent students attending Temple University:
- The right of a student, with minor limitations, to inspect and review his or her education records;
- The right to request amendment of a student’s education records to ensure that they are not inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy or other rights;
- The right, with certain exceptions, to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records;
- The right to withhold public disclosure of any or all items of so-called “Directory Information” by written notification to the Office of the Dean of Students within two weeks after publication of this notice. Under current University policy, the item “Directory Information” includes a student’s name, street address, e-mail address, confirmation of enrollment status (full-time/part-time), dates of attendance, degree received, awards received (e.g., Dean’s List), major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports and weight and height of members of athletic teams.
- The right to file a complaint with the Department of Education concerning the alleged failure of Temple University to comply with the requirements of FERPA and of the implementing regulations.
The procedures for exercising the above rights are explained in “Temple University’s Guidelines Pertaining to Confidentiality of Student Records,” copies of which are available on Temple’s website at http://policies.temple.edu/ferpa. Included in the Guidelines is a description of the types and locations of educational records maintained by the University.
If you or your parents’ primary or home language is not English, upon your request, reasonable efforts will be made to provide you with a translated copy of this “Annual Notice,” as well as with “Temple University’s Guidelines Pertaining to Confidentiality of Student Records.”
Please note that, in compliance with a 1997 federal statute designed to advance military recruiting, Temple may release dates of birth to the military unless the student notifies Temple that he or she wishes this information withheld.
