Residential Education

Residential Education is a valued part of Housing and Residence Life and is overseen by the Associate Director for Residential Education. The primary goal is to provide students with opportunities to explore learning experiences inside and outside the classroom. We provide an educational program known as Academic Retention and Student Success (ARASS) that is geared towards providing services to assist students with succeeding academically in college-life experiences.

Academic Retention and Student Success

Academic Retention and Student Success is a residential educational program established to foster student learning outcomes, retention, engagement. The program provides students with resources to achieve academic success while living on campus. We offer residential communities, tutoring, make referrals, academic assistance, peer advising, a support group, and programs for students in the residence hall community! 

Peer Mentor Program

The Peer Mentor program is designed to help new and returning students learn more about North Carolina A & T State University, succeed academically, gain leadership skills, and meet new friends.  The peer mentor program provides continuous retention efforts for the university, and plan and design various programs that primarily target the academic needs of students in the residential community.

Residential Community Program

The Living Learning Community Program at the North Carolina A & T State University recognizes that college students learn both in and out of the classroom. Since 2010, Housing and Residence Life has collaborated with our academic and student affairs partners to complement the classroom experience inside the residence halls. Through the Living Learning Communities, we offer students an opportunity to live and learn together in an integrated academic residential environment. This dynamic residential experience has offered specialized programming, interactions with A & T faculty and staff; and a supportive community that focuses on student success. We offer nine different living learning communities on campus.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The Theme House Community Program provides students with an opportunity to take an active role in their residential and educational experience at North Carolina A & T State University by engaging in a community of individuals with common educational or co-curricular interests. Theme House Communities continue to be an integral part of Housing and Residence Life’s mission to promote student learning through programming and engagement.  The Theme House Program promotes a direct link between residential, academic and co-curricular life for students at North Carolina A & T State University.  We offer five different theme house communities on campus.
