- All new Exploration and Discovery Learning Community students are required to attend a one-hour Exploration and Discovery Learning Community orientation session. This requirement takes precedence over other activities, including participation in Fraternity/Sorority Recruitment.
- In both fall and spring semesters, students are required to enroll in one, three-credit-hour “in-house” course held inside Exploration and Discovery Learning Community’s 24 seat classroom. These courses vary across many disciplines but are chosen specifically to fulfill requirements for graduation (each course counts as liberal studies or elective credit). If you leave Bryan Hall for any reason, you must also leave your Exploration and Discovery Learning Community course.
- In the fall semester, Exploration and Discovery Learning Community students are required to attend the Monday evening “Fall Colloquium” course, which features presentations from various FSU programs, talks from distinguished members of FSU’s faculty, and small group sessions to guide exploration of students’ interests, potential majors, and possible career paths. This is a one-credit-hour pass/fail course. More information about colloquium will be provided at orientation.
- In the spring semester, Exploration and Discovery Learning Community students have the chance to participate in a one-credit-hour mentorship. These mentorships allow small groups of three to ten students to meet more informally while exploring a specific topic. Mentorships are optional, but are strongly encouraged as they offer students a unique and individualized opportunity to pursue topics under the guidance of FSU faculty/staff.
- Upon completing the freshman year in the Exploration and Discovery Learning Community, students have the opportunity to mentor the new group of Exploration and Discovery Learning Community students by joining the sophomore mentorship program.
If you have a maintenance concern, please submit a work ticket request at the Bryan Hall reception desk.
