Cornelia Strong College
140 Moore-Strong Hall

Cornelia Strong College is one of three residential colleges at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. It is named after Cornelia Strong, professor of mathematics and astronomy in the University from 1905 to 1948. Strong College is open to all students in the University through a competitive admission process, and is particularly suited to those who are seeking a richer and more rewarding academic experience than they might have in a traditional residence hall. Strong College offers its members the opportunity to participate in an informal social and academic community within the context of the greater University. While Strong College does offer courses, however, it does not have a special curriculum-its members take the usual complement of courses throughout the University. Students may reside in Strong College for their full tenure at the University.

Modeled on the undergraduate colleges of universities such as Rice, Yale, and Harvard, Strong College is made up of about 260 undergraduate members in residence ("the Junior Common Room") and a group of faculty Fellows and Associates ("the Senior Common Room"), as well as a small number of resident graduate members and non-resident undergraduates. All members of Strong College may participate in a variety of co-curricular activities in the arts and sciences, including a weekly College Tea, informal discussion groups, and social events throughout the year. Both student-sponsored and faculty-sponsored events are encouraged, and Strong College endeavors to provide an environment within which the initiatives of all of its members can bear fruit.

The home of Strong College is Moore-Strong Hall, named after Professor Strong and Mary Taylor Moore, Registrar to the University from 1909 to 1948. Built in 1960 and renovated in 1994, Moore-Strong Hall provides several common rooms for College members, as well as a small library. The building as a whole is centrally air conditioned, and has cable television and some connections to the campus computer network.
