Commuter Assistants

Commuter Assistants are high-impact student leaders who provide mentorship, leadership, and programming opportunities for first-year commuter students. Commuter Assistants specialize in helping off-campus students transition to collegiate academics and find a niche on campus, as well as creating a welcoming, inclusive environment for all commuters. Commuter Assistants are experienced students who work with commuters in individual and group settings to connect them to other students, the campus, and any needed resources.  All first-year students who live off campus are assigned to a Commuter Assistant.
