The Freshman Commuter

The Freshman Commuter is a peer mentoring program which helps connect first-year commuter students to UWG. Students will meet their mentor at Transitions Orientation and they will keep in contact with their mentor (and with Commuter Services staff) throughout the year. The Freshman Commuter program will help connect first-year commuter students with each other and with residential students, building a sense of community through meetings, events, and programs. Mentors will serve as a resource to support and encourage academic success and involvement with UWG. All first-year students who are commuters (not living on campus) are eligible.
