The new site is part of the New Student Orientation program that will allow students and parents to experience campus life virtually prior to attending the scheduled campus orientation.

“We couldn’t be more delighted with the finished product,” says Moira Ryder, Assistant Director of the Office of Orientation and New Student Programs. “The new site will help students and parents become more familiar with the Temple University campus from the comfort of their own home, serve as a step-by-step guide through the orientation process and reduce any anxiety associated with this exciting transition in life.”
