The University of Georgia today dedicated the Exploratory Center, a new resource that provides personalized advising services for students who need help choosing a major, as well as for intended business and journalism majors.
Across UGA, advisors in each school and college assist students with established majors. The 13 advisors in the Exploratory Center, which is located in the heart of campus on the first floor of the Tate Student Center, are specially trained to help students identify a major that aligns with their interests and skills. In addition to housing advisors who work exclusively with students with an unspecified major, the Exploratory Center houses advisors for students who plan to pursue careers in business and journalism.
Led by coordinator Jennifer Eberhart, the advisors also refer students to partner units on campus that can assist them with career assessments, campus engagement and experiential learning opportunities that may help them identify the best academic path.
