Exploratory Studies Village
Exploratory Studies program gives first year students the opportunity to explore all majors and minors at NC State. Students in this program will explore their interests, skills/abilities, values, and strengths to help ensure they find a major that ignites their academic passion. Students who are in the Exploratory Studies Program live in the Exploratory Studies Village (or another Village on campus). The Village is a living learning community where students are surrounded by and live with other students who are also exploring their academic and co-curricular opportunities. This environment helps ease the transition into college by creating a close-knit, supportive, and like-minded environment where friendships and academic development flourish.
Students living within the Village have many wonderful opportunities they can take advantage of all year. Take a look at the current events page which highlights some of these activities.
