First-Year Orientation

As a new student, you will attend a First-Year Orientation to meet new people, learn how you can get involved as a Temple student, and register for courses.

What is First-Year Orientation?

It’s a full-day experience - either virtual or in-person - that includes the following. 

  • Academic advising and registration for courses

  • Connecting with an Owl Team Leader, who is a current student and will answer your questions about Temple

  • Meeting other new students in the Class of 2028

We’ll also have other opportunities for you to meet new people and learn about campus resources throughout the summer and at the start of the semester as part of Weeks of Welcome.

When is First-Year Orientation?

First-Year Orientation sessions will take place between June 25, 2024 and July 29, 2024. You will have the choice to either join us in person or virtually via Zoom for your one-day Orientation session.
