Northwestern treats its commuters very well, and they even have their own lounge located in the Billy Graham Commons. There are many opportunities for commuter students that provide a wonderful experience.
“The commuter lounge in the Billy is great. I had a break in between my classes, and I didn’t know what to do with my time. Thankfully I found the commuter lounge and it makes the time go by so quickly,” Khristian S, a junior at UNW.
Commuter Life constantly host events – not only its students but for the entire student body. On Friday, September 29, Commuter Life held its first-ever annual apple-picking event at the Afton Apple Orchard in Hastings. This year, Commuter Life and CORE worked together once more on a Trunk or Treat event complete with a costume contest, trunks full of candy and more.
Mercy H, a commuter at Northwestern, speaks highly of commuter life, “I enjoy being a part of the commuter community because we are a big family. We study together, eat together, and hang out together in the Commuter Lounge. Commuter Life provides a safe space for commuters to belong.”
If you’re a commuter student, please stop by the lounge and connect with us! We’d like to get to know you.
