A perfect way to show your family’s school pride is by purchasing an Exploratory Studies Custom Designed T-shirt!  

  • These light grey shirts feature the student-designed Exploratory Studies logo on the back and an official Purdue pocket logo on the front.
  • Shirts are available in unisex adult sizes S, M, L, XL, & XXL (see ordering directions below) for the low price of $14 – $15 + tax each (depending on the size).
  • Profits from the shirt sale support student engagement activities organized by the Exploratory Student Advisory Council (ESAC).
