Commuter Appreciation Week
Join Student Activities Board and the Cougar Peer Mentors (CPM) for a week filled with free food, events and fun in appreciation of our commuter students! Please check The Den for Commuter Appreciation Week events every spring semester. Make sure to have your commuter pass and your Den event pass ready to scan at all the events!
Commuter Student Programs is the umbrella term for a program that oversees all commuter services offered from the Office of Student Life. Outreach to commuters would fall into three distinct areas:
- Programming -- social opportunities, disseminate information to commuters via newsletter, email, social media
- Mentorship -- provide opportunities for mentorship to serve to all commuter students of SXU
- Advocacy -- work to address day-to-day concerns commuters may have with interaction, involvement, enrichment, engagement, etc.
As commuter students here at SXU, you'll have a uniquely different experience than that of our resident students. Commuting during your first year, in particular, can be very challenging -- and sometimes overwhelming. To that end, the Office of Student Life oversees a number of programs that help provide opportunities for commuter students to connect with one another, learn about campus resources and to get involved in the SXU community.
Our CPMs are charged with creating programs and services that connect commuter and resident students to the SXU community. CPMs will serve as a resource and advocate for the needs of all first-years and will help support students as they work to balance commuting, academic and co-curricular success at SXU.
CPMs are #firstyearproud and are here to answer your questions, relay what is going on at SXU and advocate for you with any concerns you may have as a commuter! Their current headquarters is in the Student Life Office (L-103) of the Warde Academic Center.
As a commuter student, you have representation on student government here at SXU! Do you have concerns regarding commuter students? Do you have suggestions for future programming? Please send all questions, concerns or suggestions to your SGA rep:
