The Office of New Student and Family Programs’ mission is to integrate new students and families into the Temple community through innovative and inclusive programming. We welcome over 7,000 students and their family members to Temple each year through the coordination of New Student Orientation, Parent & Family Orientation, and Transfer Advising. These programs are designed to support and ease the transition of students into the Temple community, as well as provide essential information about the campus and community.
