Program Overview

Freshman Year students in class

Big Leaps. Small Bounds.

Temple is big. FYE is small.

Our small size offers a lot of benefits for a new student at Temple. As apart of your curriculum, you take general education courses that meet Temple’s requirements with the same cohort of peers, make friends from day-one, and explore all that Temple and Harrisburg has to offer. Your advisors and instructors hold office hours right on site, making them much more accessible to you.

All of your classes are held on our own mini campus, adjacent to the Pennsylvania State Capitol and located inside Strawberry Square Complex. Our class sizes are never more than 20. These intimate class sizes allow for high-impact learning.  Many of these same courses are taught at other campuses where you could be one in one hundred!

This close-knit community will allow people to get to know you by name and be fully invested in your success. Are you ready?
