There are two types of people who come to EXPLO at Wellesley: people who love doing their thing — and people who are finding the thing they love to do. At EXPLO, we want you to do both.


The choice is yours! Whether you’re an expert in algebra, basketball, or ceramics, or whether you’ve only imagined being a fashion designer, a sports agent, or a crime scene scientist, EXPLO lets you dive into what you love as well as what you dream about. The ability to make each day yours through more than 65 courses and 60 workshops makes EXPLO unique — not to mention the fact that our students come from as close as Boston to as far away as Colombia, Korea, and Morocco.

Opportunity is at every turn. There’s even more to discover when classes end. Experience the sights and sounds of Boston and the New England area on our day trips, and seek out new experiences at daily activities. Your evenings will also excite and inspire with a wide array of events designed to entertain you, expose you to new ideas, and give you and your friends a chance to have some fun.

Learn More About Trips and Activities

When you come to EXPLO, you come to Wellesley. Set sail on Lake Waban and play pickup basketball at the athletic center. Put on a musical performance for your peers in the Alumnae Hall theater, join your friends for Frisbee on the Quad, and build an entire zombie nation. It’s 500 acres of everything you can imagine — go out and explore it!
