Hello Commuters! 


We hope everyone is having a fun and successful semester. With Spring Break coming up, we know that your minds can get a little frayed. Keep in mind that if you choose to repeat or withdraw from a course, you have until April 14th to do so.


We've got a great list of things happening around campus, from free movies to career building programs and our own event to help you through your home rental process.
