If you are commuting to UWG, or are planning to commute, you aren't alone. Commuter students make up about 75% of the undergraduate UWG student body (about 35% of the freshman class are commuters). We understand that you don't only have to deal with the daily commute, but often you have to balance home, social and academic responsibilities.
