Daily Schedule

Daily Schedule

Structuring your day means choosing the courses and workshops you’ll take and the activities, main events, and trips you’ll explore and participate in. Below, an outline of what an EXPLO weekday (and weekend) looks like.

Daily Atlas

The Daily Atlas, our campus newspaper, is your map to the day. Every morning at EXPLO, you’ll receive a copy which lists all of the opportunities and activity offerings available that day. Experience a day in the life at EXPLO.

Day Students Encouraged to Stay Late and Stay Over
To get the most out of their EXPLO experience, day students can stay as late as 8:30 p.m. every day (and they can even decide to stay late into that morning!). Day students can also sleep over two non-consecutive nights per week, getting even more of a taste of residential student life.

Weekend Schedule

After 5:00 p.m., weekend evenings follow the same schedule as weekday evenings. On Sundays, the evening Main Event is replaced with Living Group activities.

All residential students attend weekend trips. Although day students are not required to participate in weekend trips, we highly encourage them to come experience a side of EXPLO not found on campus and make new friends along the way.
