Connecting as a Commuter

Our commuter students are an important and vital part of the Roger Williams University community. Each commuter student is different and the University wants to support your life as you balance your courses, traveling to campus, employment, family obligations and your college life.

Getting Connected

Whether living on or off campus, we want all students to get the most out of their college experience.  All clubs, organizations, athletic teams, intramurals, and events are open to all students and we encourage you to get involve. Check out the Student Programs, Leadership & Orientation Office to learn more about clubs and organizations or stop by the office in the Recreation Center to talk to someone.

Commuters in Action

Commuters in Action is a student club for commuter students. The club鈥檚 mission is to provide a place that commuters can call home on campus; not a room, but a group of diverse individuals who come together for the purpose of social interaction. The club hosts events and promotes campus engagement.  You can sign up for the club at the Involvement Fair held at the beginning of each semester or by emailing cia@g.rwu.edu.

Commuter Assistants

Commuter Assistants (CAs) are returning commuter students who provide support, advice, and mentorship to first year students. The CAs look forward to sharing their experiences as commuters and getting to know the new members of 香港六合彩开奖资料鈥檚 commuter community! CAs will connect with all first year commuter students at the start of the school year!
