Temple University is many things to many people. A place to pursue life's passions. A nurturing learning environment. A hotbed of research. An engine of employment. A melting pot of ideas and innovation. An incubator for tomorrow's leaders. Temple University's history begins in 1884, when a young working man asked Russell Conwell if he could tutor him at night. A well-known Philadelphia minister, Conwell quickly said yes. It wasn't long before he was teaching several dozen students—working people who could only attend class at night but had a strong desire to make something of themselves. France, China, Korea, Nigeria and Turkey are just a few of the more than 100 countries represented in Temple University’s student body. Students come to Temple from around the world for many reasons. Their reputation for educational excellence is global. Their location in Philadelphia and their proximity to New York and Washington, D.C., is unbeatable. And the opportunities and experiences they offer are transformational. At Temple, you can broaden your knowledge in an environment that celebrates diversity and fosters growth. Open the door to a brighter future, expand your horizons and discover what it means to be Temple Made. Their 17 schools and colleges, eight campuses, hundreds of degree programs and more than 38,000 students combine to create one of the nation's most comprehensive and diverse learning environments. In neighbourhoods, across disciplines and on a global stage, members of the Temple community are making things happen.
