As a first-year student enrolled in an Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, you have the opportunity to enrich your academic experience outside of the classroom by living in the Fulton Schools Residential Community. Along with close access to classes, sporting events, campus activities, and tutoring resources, you will have access to Peer Mentors, and Community Assistants: upper-division Fulton students who live with you in the Fulton Schools Residential Community, and assist with your success. These student leaders are a helpful resource to you as you chart your academic career, and they also know how to have a lot of fun.
We use a holistic approach to ensure the success of our students. The goals of the Fulton Schools Residential Community are:
– Residents build relationships with students, faculty, and staff in the Fulton Schools of Engineering. Residents form friendships and study group with each other and interact with Fulton Schools faculty and staff outside of the classroom.
– Residents create a strong support system that serves students throughout their academic and professional careers. Residents feel a sense of belonging within the Fulton Schools and affinity for their school and major throughout their time at ASU and beyond.
– Residents connect with Fulton Schools and ASU resources that aid in student success. Professional and student staff connect residents to resources. Residents are empowered to take control of their own academic, personal, and professional success.
– Residents have fun through a variety of academic and social programs and opportunities. Residents enjoy their experience living on campus, alleviate stress from their academic obligations, and persist in their enrollment in the Fulton Schools.
The Fulton Schools Residential Community hosts exciting and engaging activities throughout the year. You can challenge your professors to a game of cornhole, dine at Engrained with faculty and upperclassmen, learn about Laser Cutting Lab and our 3D printers with other engineers, tour ASU and industry facilities and much more!
Turn around trips
The Fulton Schools Residential Community hosts two turn around trips for Residential Freshmen! Join us as we head to an exciting location (TBD). Past trips have included Universal Studios Hollywood and Disneyland California.
Tempe – Tooker House
Tooker House, designed specifically for undergraduates in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, is a seven-story, co-ed living and learning community on ASU’s Tempe campus. Tooker House has many structural, educational, and community features that make it the perfect place to enjoy living and studying as an engineer.
A goal for the project was to express the engineering and sustainable design elements of the community in as many forms as possible throughout the project’s spaces to support a strong living/learning community. Two e-space classrooms provide a collaborative environment where engineering students can work on projects, develop new technologies and use maker tools like 3D printers and laser cutters.
