Commuter Connection

First Friday of each month
12:00pm – 12:50pm
Lower Flat Tuesdays

Commuter IconThe main goal of the Commuter Connection program is to connect commuter students to the greater campus community. OCSS works to prevent commuter students from experiencing the age-old commuter tale of simply going to class and going home. With several events every semester, our Commuter Assistants organize fun and educational events where students can socialize with other commuters, connect with staff and faculty, and learn about on and off-campus resources.

For a full listing of Commuter Connection Events, visit the OCSS group page on myUMBC.
