The Corner Pocket enhances student well-being by providing a social hub where students come to relax, study, and engage with peers, faculty, and staff. Corner Pocket engages student organizations and on-and off-campus partners to host various students and staff-related events. The Corner Pocket strives to provide comfortable social spaces, promote high-energy friendly competition, demonstrate superior customer service, and provide creative programs and event support.
