About Exploratory Studies


Welcome to Exploratory Studies!  Exploratory Studies, formerly known as the First Year College, is a program where students can explore different majors and find the perfect fit for them. Established in 1995, Exploratory Studies has developed a nationally-recognized model for successfully advising students through their first year at the university. From personal, one-on-one academic and career advising to a two semester orientation course and the Exploratory Studies Village living-learning community, the program provides a comprehensive experience for first year students who want to choose the right major and graduate on time.
