The Freshman Year at Temple Harrisburg

The Freshman Year at Temple University Harrisburg (FYTH) is designed to offer Temple General Education courses to full-time admitted students at the Harrisburg campus. The purpose of the program is to allow students from the Central Pennsylvania area the opportunity to live and work near home while completing their initial year as full time Temple students. The first year will prepare students with skills necessary to be successful at the undergraduate level. Staying small in Harrisburg will allow students to establish relationships and connections with other students and main campus staff prior to arriving. The program is designed to give students a 4 day weekend and a 3 day intensive class schedule. The program will also incorporate various social and co-curricular activities that would allow students to experience the main campus and ease their transition.


The Temple University Strawberry Square facility is 35,650 square feet located across from the capitol in an office/shopping complex and offers a wide range of classrooms, conference rooms and computer labs equipped with the latest technology for meeting, video conferencing and presentation needs.
