The new 370 bed residential hall will house the Barrett residential community and the Barrett Suite, including the Barrett Student Lounge, faculty and staff offices, classrooms, computer lab, and study space.
Barrett first year students are welcomed to the community by attending the Barrett Poly Retreat in northern Arizona - a chance to connect with upper division student mentors and make new friends to start the academic year.
Student life in Barrett at the Polytechnic campus is a central component of the honors experience. Students have opportunities to attend receptions with visiting lecturers, arts and culture events, wellness events, movie/game nights, and thesis workshops as well as scholarship and internship information sessions.
The Barrett Mentoring Program continues throughout the year, with each mentor group working directly with their mentees to help ease the transition to college by serving as a resource and attending Barrett events together.
The Barrett Suite encompasses the Barrett Lounge, conference room, and faculty and staff offices. The most popular place for Barrett students to gather and build community on the Polytechnic campus is the Barrett Lounge. The lounge has multipurpose functionality - from eating lunch with friends, to collaborating on group projects, to buying Barrett swag during the bi-weekly Barrett bucks store. Students have access to the lounge during normal business hours (8:00AM - 5:00PM Monday - Friday) and until 7:30PM Monday - Thursday during the academic year.
The Barrett Leadership and Service Team (BLAST) is the leadership and service team for honors students on the Polytechnic campus. BLAST spent the morning at the Farm at Agritopia to help the community build a new chicken coop.

The Colloquium at the Polytechnic campus strengthens Barrett's intellectual community. Upper division students hone their writing and tutoring skills through the Honors Writing Colloquium course led by Dr. Martin (and earn honors credit through HON 394). Upper division students assist first year students with designing and implementing an effective thesis in the Human Event's signature papers, fostering a positive learning environment.
Upper division student are welcomed into the community with a luncheon with Associate Dean Sugar and staff to learn what to expect in HON 370 History of Ideas and about the many opportunities available.
Students are able to reserve the Barrett conference room for group project meetings, thesis meetings, and study sessions. The presentation areas in the student lounge are also available to schedule for a thesis defense. Contact Matt Barber at Matthew.B.Barber@asu.edu for more information.
The Barrett Residential Community is a supportive living and learning community. Events such as game nights, academic workshops, field trips to the theater, service events, and other fun activities bring first year and upper division students together and provide fun ways to strengthen the bonds of the honors community.
Current Barrett students at the Polytechnic campus live in Century Hall and South Desert Village. First year and upper division students living on campus for the 2020-21 academic year will be the first students to live in the new residential hall currently under construction.
In addition to Barrett-sponsored events, first year students get acclimated to Barrett student life by attending events with their Barrett Mentor group to earn points to win the mentor challenge.
Barrett Polytechnic students also take part in club meetings for the Barrett Leadership and Service Team (BLAST) and the Barrett Mentoring Program. A select group of students take part in building the next cohort of first year students by serving as Honors Devils. Honors Devils earn honors credit and learn professional development skills to help them promote Barrett and the Polytechnic campus by sharing their honors experience with prospective students and their families.
Poly Honors Devils are Barrett students who promote the Honors College and Polytechnic campus by speaking with prospective students, guiding tours, and holding events designed to encourage high-achieving students to apply to Barrett....
