Exploratory Studies

Location

Exploratory Studies, formerly known as the First Year College (FYC) is the "college of options" for students entering NC State University. Established in 1995, Exploratory Studies has developed a nationally-recognized model for successfully advising students through their first year at the university. From personal, one-on-one academic and career advising to our two-semester orientation course and our living-learning community, Exploratory Studies provides a comprehensive experience for first year students who want to choose the right major and graduate on time.
