The CoRe Residential Experience, located in South Neighborhood, provides tutoring, peer mentors, professional and recreational field trips, evening presentations, and service opportunities. By holding many of these activities in South Neighborhood, the CoRe Experience ensures easy access to all of our support resources important for success in the first year, including the computer and project labs for the CoRe courses and academic advising.
The Residential Experience is fully integrated with MSU's Neighborhood initiative. This means that students will also have full access to 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, transportation, and innovation. In the lobbies of the theme floors, video monitors, 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, giving students insight on engineering in the "real world".
