Exploratory Studies Alumni

Exploratory Studies (previously First Year College) Alumni have gone on to be successful in all of the undergraduate colleges at NC State University. We are fortunate to have a diverse group of alumni that includes both current NC State students (pursuing degrees in other colleges) and NC State graduates.

We encourage our alumni to keep in touch with their Exploratory Studies (FYC) Advisors- we like to know how you are doing!

Alumni remain involved with Exploratory Studies by encouraging our current students through the major and career decision-making process. Alumni can speak at forum events, majors fairs, academic networking events or any other venue where our current students can benefit from the experiences and lessons learned by our alumni.
