Activities + Events

You have not known choice and opportunity like this.

Afternoons and evenings at EXPLO mirror the extracurricular environment you’ll find when you get to college. Join a daily debate group, attend a talk given by a guest speaker from the UN, or play in a basketball tournament. At night, enjoy live music with your friends, head to Second City with a group of staff and students, perform at an open mic, or hang out with friends in the student lounge. With boundless opportunities and the freedom to choose what you participate in, every day feels different and exciting.

The Atlas: Your Day, At-a-Glance

We know — there’s a ton that goes on during an EXPLO day. That’s why we developed the Atlas, a navigation tool that lists the daily schedule, all of your options, and where you need to be at what time. Students receive an Atlas every morning to help guide you through your day.
