Commuter Assistants help make the Commuter Lounge your home away from home. They plan social and educational programs designed to build community and promote campus resources. They also team with Resident Assistants (RAs) on programs to create a vibrant campus life for all students.

CAs are undergraduate students selected for their interpersonal skills and their willingness to aid commuter students. They go through extensive training to serve as resources for you. The CAs are important conduits of information and work as your liaison to the Student Affairs Office. They have posted hours during which they will be in the Commuter Lounge, but they can also be seen in the Library, the Commons and the Easton Café. You may also find the CAs in the parking lots during one of their popular Parking Lot Programs. The Commuter Assistants are supervised by the Area Coordinator of Heinz, Knight, and Commuter Life, whose office is one floor above the Commuter Lounge in Heinz Hall.
