The CoRe Residential Experience, located in the South Neighborhood on campus, presently houses about 705 engineering students per year and continues to grow. The program provides common course scheduling, tutoring, peer mentors, professional and recreational field trips, evening presentations, projects, and service opportunities, with many of the functions held in South Neighborhood, which also houses the computer and project labs for the CoRe courses and first-year academic advising.
The Residential Experience is fully integrated with MSU's Neighborhood initiative. Students will have full access to all of the South Neighborhood services, programs, and facilities. For more information on applying for campus housing and campus living, visit MSU's Live On site. Virtual tours for the suite style rooms available in the South Neighborhood are also available from MSU's Live On site. South Neighborhood suites are similar to the Holmes Hall/West suite style rooms.
The CoRe Experience benefits from a strong connection to industry, with corporate partners supporting "theme floors" in Wilson Hall that relate to 21st century engineering challenges such as energy and transportation. In the lobbies of the theme floors, video monitors, murals, cabinet displays and QR coded web links provide information to students on activities of both partners and college faculty related to these themes. The partners also engage with students throughout the year through large auditorium-based seminars, small room "fireside chats," career preparation and recruiting events, and related activities.
