Visit Exploratory Studies

Thank you for your interest in Exploratory Studies. Exploratory Studies offers several opportunities during the year to learn about our program. These visits last an hour and are designed for high school juniors and seniors to get an overall picture of our program. All visitation sessions are located in Holmes Hall building, room 110, and start promptly at 1:30 pm. The visitation includes a 35-minute presentation, hearing from Exploratory Studies Student Ambassadors, a general Q & A session, and an optional guided tour of our living and learning community, Exploratory Studies Village. Registration for Exploratory Studies visitation is required.

Our visitation time is scheduled so that you may also participate in the general campus tour and information session in the morning at the Joyner Visitor Center while here at NC State. We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity in addition to visiting with us. University information sessions and tours are coordinated through Undergraduate Admissions.
