Temple is a very good school for a really good price. That was a big influence in my decision. I felt you got the most value for what you’re spending. I wanted a large, urban school. Temple definitely fits the build. I also like how Temple prepares you for being a business professional outside of just a classroom.

Management Information Systems and Finance
Take chances because you never know where opportunity takes you. Talk to people. It all comes down to networking. It’s never too late to change something and find something you like. I took a chance to come from Vietnam to Philadelphia, and now I will be on the IT Risk Assurance staff with the advisory practice at Ernst & Young. So take chances – definitely.
The Fox Honors program went on a freshman retreat right before the semester started, and I had the opportunity to meet my advisors and students I’d eventually take all my classes with. I wasn’t used to having that close-knit community; and that was amazing.
I like Temple because it’s close to home but I feel like I’m far away. Temple is a fun school that presents a lot of opportunities, and it opens so many doors that wouldn’t be open if I went to a smaller school or one outside the city.

As President of Temple Veterans Association I like to meet and hear the stories of the 650-plus veterans who call Temple University their home.
The first Marketing and Supply Chain Management Department networking event I attended was also my first time meeting employers. I was so nervous. Burlington [Coat Factory, a national retailer] asked me for an interview, and that’s how I set up my entire summer as a buying intern for them – going to that event for 20 minutes.
I’m the Retail and Social Media Manager for United By Blue [a sustainable apparel company that, for each product sold, removes one pound of trash from waterways]. On a day-to-day basis, I manage the store, as well as our social media content, ensuring platforms are updated each day and helping to plan commercial campaigns.

I’m the first to go to college out of my whole family. I waitressed at a diner at home, and a Temple faculty member sat in my station and I was talking to her. I told her I got accepted to Temple, and she offered to take me for a tour. I saw the Fox School, and I loved it. So I came. It was a great decision.
My biggest piece of advice is to get involved, and get involved in depth versus breadth. A lot of people try to get involved in a lot of activities – and that’s good, to test the waters – but by the time your sophomore year rolls around, get involved in one particular club and take on a leadership role because that’s where you form the connections and community that will help you in the future.
