Center for Global Scholars – New Residence Hall

The Center for Global Scholars (CGS) is a new residence hall for Pierce College students, which opened in Fall 2016 quarter. This new residence hall is an interdependent global learning community for local domestic students and international students to promote cross-cultural understanding and academic success. Strong student support, unique learning opportunities and academic presentations with a global emphasis will be an ongoing part of this learning community experience. Students are well-supported with an onsite resident manager and 3 resident assistants, all of whom live in the residence hall to offer support, guidance and educational opportunities for student success.

We ask all residents to read and be familiar with both the Residence Hall Agreement and the
2016-17 Residence Hall Handbook.

Application Eligibility/Criteria

  • Must be a student taking at least 12 credits
  • Must be at least 18 years or older
