The EXPLO 360 at Yale schedule lets you make your own day. Much like being a student at college or university, you will face the challenge of having so many incredible opportunities to choose from — and a finite amount of time to fit them all in. In addition to your courses and workshops, we encourage all EXPLO 360 at Yale students to take advantage of as many activities, events, and trips as possible. Below, an outline of what an EXPLO weekday (and weekend) looks like.
"The sheer diversity, in people, classes, and activities, is one of the many things that make the atmosphere of EXPLO so unique. I've never been to another place quite like it."
Student, EXPLO 360 at Yale
The Daily Atlas is your map to the day. Every morning at EXPLO, you’ll receive a copy of the Daily Atlas, our campus newspaper. The Atlas lists all of the opportunities and activity offerings available that day. You’ll have the difficult choice of narrowing down your favorites. If you’d like to take a look at what the Daily Atlas looks like (and the range of options available everyday), view a sample Daily Atlas (.PDF) and see what a day in the life at EXPLO looks like.
There are required academic periods and check-ins throughout the day. But there are also a range of options every afternoon and evening that allow you to continue your intellectual investigations at open studios or debates, explore the City of New Haven with your friends, check out some of Yale’s museums, or take advantage of the distinct daily activities on campus that range from athletic to artsy to zany to low-key. You’ll be back on Old Campus by 7:45 p.m. to check in, head to the evening events, meet up with a student-led organization, or take advantage of some down time to catch up on laundry, work on course projects, or relax with your friends. The choice is yours.
