exploring students

Exploring is the largest program on college campuses. About 65% of American college students are exploring and deciding among many majors and career paths while in college. The Exploring Program at Carroll University is here to help you find a major that fuels your passions and engages your strengths. Academic advisors, faculty mentors, and peer mentors will walk with you through this journey of self-discovery—without wasting your time, money, or effort.
