Commuting to CNR
Commuter students are vital members of our College Community. Through the website, mailings, ANGEL and regularly scheduled activities, the Office of Student Development helps commuters acclimate to life at CNR.

To ensure involvement, we offer a number of programs and services that help commuters in the School of Arts and Sciences and School of Nursing stay connected.

If you are new to the College either as an incoming freshman or transfer student, be sure to read information regarding Orientation and Opening Weekend for Commuters.

What programs and services are available to commuters?
Activities are a big part of Commuter Life! The Office of Student Development works hard to provide relevant and fun activities to keep commuter students engaged. Commuter Breakfast Calls, Commuter Grab & Go's and Commuter Appreciation Day are just some of the events that Student Development and the Student Government Association offers commuters.
