Have a Great College Experience as a Commuter

Many students commute to and from school and this can be a great option. It saves money and you get to enjoy all the amenities of living at home. However, one problem many commuters face is feeling displaced from the social aspects of living on campus. We came across this article on USA Today and knew we had to share it with our commuting readers. Here are some of our favorite tips:

 

 

• Actually be on campus: Many commuters just go to class and go home. Staying on campus allows you to meet more people, hang out with friends, grab some dinner, and be social. You can even get a job on campus!

• Get involved: Just because you don’t live on campus, doesn’t mean you can’t be involved. Join a group, sorority, fraternity, honor society, etc. It will give you community involvement, help you make friends, and give you a chance to be on campus without having to be in class or studying.

• Attend events on campus: There are tons of events taking place on campus each day. From musicals to plays to sporting events, anything that keeps you on campus will get you in the school spirit!

Check out the article on USA Today to get more ideas on how to be a commuter and have a successful college career! Do you have any advice of your own?
