In addition to a quality education and professional experience, the Kornberg School of Dentistry invites you to take advantage the enrichment opportunities our university and city have to offer. As a Temple student, you’ll work, study and explore Philadelphia, surrounded by the rich history and diverse culture that makes this city such an incredible place to call home.
Philadelphia is home to one of the largest urban parks in the country, Fairmount Park, which is bisected by the Schuylkill River and features hiking and biking trails, outdoor fitness and recreation activities, and a thriving sports community.
Entertainment is always just moments away, with easy access to internationally renowned cultural institutions such as the Academy of Natural Sciences, Franklin Institute and Philadelphia Museum of Art. Enjoy live theater at the historic Academy of Music, catch a concert at any of the city’s iconic music venues, or do some shopping in the lively Fashion District.
Philadelphia’s food scene is one of the best in the world. Grab a meal with friends in any of the city’s distinctive neighborhoods, or at one of the dozens of food trucks on Temple’s Main Campus, which offer authentic local and global cuisine.
Also, at Temple, you’re always only a couple hours by train to New York City and Washington, D.C.—perfect for day trips or weekend excursions.
