Meet our Commuter Assistants

Meet Kayleigh

CA Kaleigh selfieHello, my name is Kayleigh and I am a Commuter Assistant for OCSS. I am a Freshman student studying Global Studies, and I also have minors in music and Spanish. I live on-campus and I started working with OCSS in January of 2020. I’m a CA because I want to make sure that commuter students have the same opportunities and resources as students living on-campus. So if you have any questions or suggestions, please stop by!

Meet Sam

My name is Samuel Murrill, and I am a Commuter Assistant in the Off-Campus Student Services at UMBC. Starting off my first semester at UMBC in Fall 2019, I came to campus as a commuter student and a transfer students. Luckily, I was able to rely on OCSS to allow me to become well acclimated with the university. I know what it is like to be a student who feels disconnected from the college community I attend and even more so how it feels to be apart of an organization that makes sure I am connected with other students like me. As a Media and Communication Studies Major in my Junior year of college, I joined the OCSS staff as a Commuter Assistant to help students feel how they should: part of this campus in a strong college experience. My hopes as a CA is that students will be able to find the resources they need, engage with others like them, and be able to voice any concerns they have as students under these demographics. I will always be willing to listen and help out if I can; you can find me at the OCSS desk or at one of the commuter events!


Meet Jesse

Hello! My name is Jesse Mannion, and I am one of the commuter assistants at Off-Campus Student Services!  I am a Junior, psychology and sociology double major. I am also pre-nursing, and I plan to pursue my Doctor of Nursing Practice at the University of Maryland School of Nursing.  I have had the extreme honor of working with multiple campus groups this year and last! I work with our four populations at OCSS, but I also am the secretary for the Erickson Hall Community Council where I plan fun events for residential students.  I am also a member of the Honors College and work as the Personal Relations Chair for the Honors College Council. I enjoy music, painting, and meeting new people. I typically work at the OCSS desk on Mondays and Wednesdays, so stop by if you ever want to chat!

Meet Keith
