At night, the campus comes to life.

In the evenings, students choose from various events where they can gather with a group of friends for live concerts on the Quad, participate in improv comedy performances at the Shubert Theater, Dance Night at Toad’s Place, and much more! Looking for something more low key? Check out movies on the Quad or the chill atmosphere of the EXPLO student lounge.

Sports and Athletics

You like to move. You like to sweat. At EXPLO, you’ll have plenty of time and opportunities to do both. For a more structured experience, you can enroll in any of our afternoon athletic workshops (such as flag football, tennis, basketball, yoga, fencing, crew, or latin dance), or in special sports clinics (sailing or golf). If you’re looking for a little less instruction and would rather jump right into playing, you can join a sports league (like rugby, 3 vs. 3 basketball, soccer, or swimming). Plus, there’s always sports equipment on the Quad so that you can start a pick-up game of ultimate Frisbee, football, or soccer. During X-Time, head out with friends to the fields or tennis courts, or simply stop by the Payne Whitney Gymnasium to get in a good workout.
