Instagram Competition!!!

Hello Fellow Commuters!

Just a few reminders for ongoing and upcoming events to keep a look out for: for all the photo fanatics out there, the commuter Instagram competition goes until Tuesday, September 30– so capture a view or scene that you love the most during your commute, or snap a quick shot of something you believe to be the best part of being a commuter. There’s a ton to look for! (And believe me when I say “a ton,” as I take a photo every few steps while gallivanting across campus). Post your photo on Instagram using the hashtag #SUCommuter, and we’ll pick a winner based on the individualism, creativity and spirit of the photo. The winner will receive a $25 gift card to the University Bookstore and have their photo featured on SU’s Commuter Connections website! Grab your camera and go!

Also, upcoming is our very first commuter luncheon of the semester on Thursday, September 25 – if you’ve loved the commuter breakfasts so far, or if you have yet to stop by, please join us at the luncheon. There are friends, food and fun! I am so pleased about our turnouts at the “Good Morning, Commuters” breakfasts lately and imagine that you all are getting to know each other greatly! You’d be surprised at how much of an influence these small breakfasts have in giving you a more positive and brighter outlook toward your day. Whether it’s for a minute or an hour, it never hurts to exchange even a friendly smile as you grab your coffee and go. And so, I anticipate that you all will come out to the luncheon as well.

Until then, Happy Commuting!

Warmest [and Wettest] Welcomings

Hello to all the wayfarers and wanderers – the vagrants and voyagers, suburbanites and sightseers! Hello to my fellow commuters! I hope everyone is finally getting a chance to adjust and dry off after a brooding welcoming of the semester. On behalf of Mother Nature, my sincerest sympathies go out to all those who didn't think to bring that rain coat. You weren't the only ones.

Now that the storm shows some sign of settling, at least, I would love to know what everyone is up to! Did anyone pop into the Student Activities Fair during the first week of classes? No fears for the ones who couldn't make it because I am here to keep you posted! There are a slew of events happening this September! Come out to one of our very own “Good Morning, Commuters!” breakfasts held in Cool Beans from 8:30-9:30 a.m. every Wednesday and stop by the Nanticoke Room at 1 p.m. for our first Commuter Luncheon of the semester and get FREE pizza and some great information on how YOU can get involved in on-campus activities. If I were you, I would hang around campus and come out to the Pool Tournament held on Monday, September 22, in the Gaming Area of the Guerrieri University Center (GUC) if you are up for the challenge. Or, come out to the Just Dance Video Game Tournament held in in the GUC Fireside Lounge on Wednesday, September 24, for all of you pro gamers out there! Both events run from 7-9 p.m. with a 6:30 p.m. registration for all participants, but spectators are welcome.

SU has lots to offer, so come find your niche! I implore you commuters come out, try something different and explore what SU has to offer.

Best of luck, and happy commuting!
