Commuter Assistant Program

Just like Resident Assistants help resident students transition to college life, Adelphi University Commuter Assistants are available to help commuter students transition to college life.

Commuter assistants are placed with incoming commuter students to serve as a mentor and as a resource for them. Each commuter assistant will keep in contact with his or her commuting first-year student, help them navigate Adelphi University and help them get involved on campus.

All commuter assistants hold desk hours in the second floor of the Nexus building at the Commuter Assistant Desk during the week so that they are accessible to answer questions that a commuter student may have.

Commuter Assistants are equipped with the most up-to-date information regarding campus events and news so that they stand ready to assist any commuter student that may need their guidance!

Apply to become a commuter assistant!

Applications are being accepted until March 1, 2020, at 5:00 p.m.
