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.
