Advising Centers

FRESHMEN STUDENTS: Center for Exploratory Students, William Johnston Building (WJB) ground floor

All Exploratory freshmen and first-year students who are “re-deciding” their major should visit the Center for Exploratory Students, located on the ground floor of the William Johnston Building (WJB).

For students in the Exploratory major, the year at a glance details the type of programming and support an exploratory student receives during their first year of the major exploration process. Freshmen students should contact their Center for Exploratory Students advisor for all advising support until the end of the drop/add period in their third term. If a student remains in the Exploratory major after this period, they will transition to the Center for Academic Planning (CAP) for Exploratory advising.
