Commuter students are vital members of the College community. Nearly half of our students commute, but all students feel at home on campus.
There are a number of programs tailored to the needs and schedules of commuter students, including monthly commuter breakfasts and a commuter celebration week. We also offer a Commuter Assistant program, inviting upperclassmen who are involved in campus life to assist first-year commuter students as they successfully integrate into the Mount community. Staff members will guide you and answer questions—plus they’ll even help you find employment on or near campus.
Set activity periods each afternoon ensure commuters can engage in extracurricular events, trips, and activities—so there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer or join different student clubs and organizations! Whether your classes are during the day or in the evening, we encourage you to visit the Alumnae Pavilion Student Center, which houses the Mount’s Office of Student Activities, Leadership, and Commuter Life.
