Commuter Assistant Program

Commuter Assistants are experienced Salisbury University students who know
the University inside and out, excel academically, and are highly involved in
the campus community.
What They Do:

incoming commuter students to Salisbury University by connecting them to a
network of Commuter Assistants. Commuter Assistants help incoming students with

engagement in clubs and organizations, and even accompany their incoming
students to a variety of University-sponsored events.

sites. He or she will also invite you to share a meal at the Commons and to
attend events on campus.

class student who can serve as a resource for any questions you may have about
Salisbury University and college life. You will get to know your fellow commuter
students. You will also have someone to accompany you as you get to know the
campus community and all that’s going on at our campus. Lastly, you will enjoy
