On select days throughout the regular semester, academic-based Exploration Days are held on FSU’s main campus and are an opportunity for regional high school students and instructors to see what the university programs offer.

After students checked in at Colebank Hall and attended an opening session, they were able to participate in rotating sessions.

The day was filled with demonstrations, workshops and studio tours, centering around the creative endeavors of the fields of study.
