What You Should Know as a Commuter
It’s up to you to get safely back and forth from campus. The first thing you should do is register for a parking permit and find out where to park on campus.
Helpful Hints: Learn how to get hold of Campus Public Safety —they are there to help you; always give yourself enough time to negotiate traffic back-ups and detours; and know where and how to check if inclement weather is in the forecast!
You might find yourself balancing your roles as student, employee, or even parent. If you’re in the car or using public transportation, make this your time to reflect and plan.
Helpful Hints: Visit Bay Path’s Hatch Library where they have books on tape; or use your MP3 player and make your own “keeps me sane” play list.
Getting the Right Support
It doesn’t matter if you are a commuter or a residential student, you have to make priorities. Academics are the number one reason you’re at college, so always keep that in perspective.
Helpful Hints: Get to know the Commuter Connection Club advisors—they’re there to help you in all kinds of situations; and the Bashevkin Academic Center provides tutorial one-on-one sessions in writing, math and other areas.
Take the time to get involved. By doing so you build relationships with people on campus, and you make your college experience all the more meaningful. It’s your chance to shine!
