Commuter School Resource
It can be hard to organize student groups at commuter schools. Commuter schools have less of a culture for community since there are little to no dorms in the area. If students don't live there, it can hard to organize meetings or events and what not on campus. Without community, a group is not serving its purpose.
Commuter schools often attract more nontraditional students than 4 year colleges, so meetings and events need to be designed with the specific needs of non-traditional students in mind. This guide will be a resource to help you make the most out of a commuter school or community college environment.
