Student Organizations are a valuable part of the college experience! They offer opportunities for leadership development, community service, and provide great networking connections. Student organizations also allow students to connect to something larger than themselves, which can expand their view of the world and help them explore their future role in it. Exploratory Studies offers some fantastic groups that YOU can be a member of:
Exploratory Studies Ambassadors
The Exploratory Studies Ambassadors is a select group of students who are dedicated to the positive promotion of the Exploratory Studies Program and Purdue University. The group is comprised of current and former Exploratory students who wish to share their experiences with prospective Purdue students at orientation and admissions events throughout the year. Ambassadors have the vital role of communicating their knowledge of what it is like to be a beginning student without a major. The program allows talented Exploratory students to meet, interact, and network with future Boilermakers, their families, and fellow peers.

The Purdue University BoilerMENTOR program is a peer-to-peer mentoring program for first-year students who are recipients of the Emerging Leader scholarship. Each year, Exploratory Studies pairs incoming Emerging Leaders scholars with upper-class students who are or have been in the Exploratory Studies Program.
Who are the BoilerMENTORs?
The students selected as BoilerMENTORs are leaders on campus and have demonstrated the ability to adjust to the collegiate environment and perform well academically. Their strong commitment to academics and to the University community serves as the platform for where we desire our incoming students to reach.
Current Emerging Leaders are encouraged to be mentors in this program.
BoilerMENTORs are selected through an application and interview process conducted each spring semester. The application process will be posted on this site when available.
