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.
"My family and I have always pinpointed the exact period in my life where I finally stepped out of my shell. That period was my summer at EXPLO."
Aviance W., EXPLO Alum
"EXPLO has taught me to be more independent. You know, my parents aren’t here telling me when to eat breakfast. I’m doing that. They aren’t doing my laundry. I get to do that too. I feel like I've really become my own person here."
Zoe K., EXPLO Alum
"It was seriously the best thing I've ever done. It taught me that there is more to the world than the small town I'm from."
Kaitlyn P., EXPLO Alum
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.See Courses and Academics
