The only downside to Temple University Ambler Campus is that there is no housing and no dinning hall, so there is very little in terms of student activity, but they try! The overall culture seems welcoming and being a commuter, the availability of classes really work with my schedule. However, it's up to you to make sure you stay on track, advisers aren't always the most helpful. If you commute, you get no respect when it comes to snow or in general with snow. One thing they need to improve is the Asian History department, not enough main campus courses.
