BLOC (Barrett Living On Campus)

General Information: 

Barrett Honors College students have the opportunity to participate in our Barrett living-learning residential community, Barrett Living On Campus, which is designed to support academically outstanding students. Freshmen honors students live together in Century Hall. This facility is designed to promote the types of community activities that Barrett students enjoy – game nights, academic workshops and brainstorming sessions, and meetings with honors student mentors.

Honors sophomores continue the BLOC experience in our on-campus neighborhood comprised of two- and three-bedroom houses in South Desert Village. Students in the Upper Class BLOC enjoy the continued support of their fellow honors students, including many juniors and seniors who also continue to live on campus. BLOC events such as barbecues, hikes, healthy eating and theater performances, and service opportunities such as the Community Garden and Drumstix Dash, bring both BLOC groups together and provide fun ways to keep the honors community bonds strong.

Each community has live-in Paraprofessionals (Parapros) and Community Assistants (CAs) who engage the student population in programming, as well as hold open door hours for connecting with students on a personal basis and serving as one of many points of contact for the wide-range of available resources.

How To Get Involved: 

Paraprofessional and Community Assistant positions have open application windows once a year. Students submit an application and also go through an interview process. Students interested in a paraprofessional leader position should contact Jennifer Brady for more information. Students interested in applying to be a Community Assistant should contact ASU Housing.
