Explorers Network

Explorers Network banner

The Explorers Network is composed of Purdue students and alumni who have volunteered to discuss their Purdue academic experiences with other Exploratory Studies students who are learning more about specific majors. The Explorers Network provides students an opportunity to connect with alumni of Exploratory Studies and learn about their decision-making process. It offers an experience to learn from peers about their experiences in different majors.
