Commuter Advisory Board

 

Do you live in a residence hall? If you answered no, then you are indeed a "commuter student." The image that most people think of when they hear the word "commuter" is of someone who lives in the suburbs and must drive a long distance in bad traffic on the highway to work every day. Commuting to Pace University may entail catching a bus or riding a bike, walking, rollerblading or driving a car, taking a train to campus. Essentially, if you live off campus, we consider you to be a commuter. Nationwide, over 87% of college students commute to campus, you should know you are not alone!

Whether or not you adopt the term "commuter" as your identity, we hope that you will investigate the useful resources in our office. The Center for Student Development and Campus Activities is committed to enhancing your college experience and helping you succeed in both your academic and out-of-class endeavors at Pace University.

Commuter students are diverse in many ways: age, racial/ethnic identity, family status, working status, how you to campus, distance you commute, living arrangements and so forth. In spite of all the differences, commuter students do have common concerns. Time management, balancing multiple roles, getting to campus and getting connected to campus life are all issues that face commuter students. Pace University offers services to commuters to help you face those issues head-on! Stop by our office in the Kessel Student Center, to find out what we can do for you!
