Temple Announces Tuition Freeze Because Temple Is Just That Awesome

As universities nickel and dime students into canyons of post-graduation debt, there stands a beacon of light, which just happens to be in North Philly. Temple announced on Thursday a freeze on tuition for in-state and out-of-state students. Also, an additional $8 million of student aid will be offered through the university. Knowledge that the university’s appropriation will remain at $139.9 million certainly helped Temple’s trustees come to the decision to keep tuition stagnant, but they should probably get a round of applause anyway.
