Co-ed living adds to the positive community environment. Residents of Poole are expected to respect individual differences and learn from the diverse viewpoints that result between the different genders and lifestyles of the residents. To reside in Poole, a student must be in good standing socially and academically.
Residential programming for Poole residents augments the social climate of campus while creating a healthy community. Residents can have discussions with faculty and staff outside of the classroom to help them decide or gain further insights into their academic studies and future careers. This is a vital component of the college experience as students discover who they are and what they want to do with their futures. The Poole Residence Center provides the perfect environment for such growth.
