Poling is the most important building for parents. This is the home of the business office, here students/parents can pay their tuition bill, as well take care of account specifics; such as change of meal plan, parking passes, or pick up of work study paychecks.   

Poling is not just a resource for the parents but for students as well.  The other half of the first floor is dedicated to them. This is the home for the Wackerle Career & Leadership Center, which helps students in a variety of ways.  They will help a freshman find their place or help a Senior find a job, internship or a grad school.  They have resume workshop days, mock interviews, etiquette dinners and much more to get students ready for the real world.  Third floor Poling is also home to the registrar’s office.  Here students can register for courses, maintain academic records, or track progress toward their degree.

Poling Hall, once known as the Carnegie Library, was built in 1897, when industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie offered the college $30,000 for the construction of a library on the condition that Monmouth matched the gift with a $30,000 maintenance fund.  When the Hews Library was completed in 1969, the Carnegie Library was emptied of books and reverted for other essential functions.  In 1991, college trustee Harold A. “Red” Poling gave a gift to convert Carnegie Library into a student center know as Poling Hall.
