Polytechnic School Residential College Experience
The residential college experience combines the personal attention, support, and familial atmosphere of a small college with the extensive resources of a major research university. The Ira A. Fulton Residential College at the Polytechnic School is a cohesive, energetic community of scholars that seeks to broaden learning beyond the traditional classroom, laboratory, or workshop setting, allowing students and the greater ASU community to explore common intellectual and extra-curricular interests together. The residential college sponsors a broad range of social, cultural and intellectual activities, fostering interaction amongst the diverse community as well as helping students achieve academic, social, and career goals. Students have access to community mentors and upper-division students from a variety of Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering degree programs who serve as a resource to residents and assist in the planning of varied activities.
