Commuter Services And Outreach

The mission of the office of Commuter Services and Outreach is to promote commuter student success by creating opportunities to network and integrate into the College community. Our programs and outreach create a way for commuter students to meet, share issues and express their concerns. Our one-stop environment is a place where commuters can connect with each other, find resources and receive support. This ensures that their needs are met and addressed by the campus community. Commuter Services and Outreach offers a wide range of services and programs including:

  • Lockers

    lockers

    Lockers are available for use on campus from September through May of the academic year, and cost $10 to rent.

  • The Commuter Chronicle

    The Commuter Chronicle is a student-operated newsletter.
    It was created to inform all commuters of services on
    campus and how they operate. In addition, the editorial
    staff takes on issues that are relevant to the commuter
    population, such as parking, health and food services.
