Commuter Assistants

Commuter Assistants are knowledgeable, experienced commuters who are hired to serve Wentworth's commuter population. They have experience balancing classes, homework, projects, off-campus jobs, and responsibilities at home. They understand unique commuter challenges and are experts in navigating them successfully. 

Here are a few things that Commuter Assistants do: 

  • Plan, run and attend social and educational programs for commuters. 

  • Get to know commuter students and work to create a commuter community on campus. 

  • Collaborate with campus departments and student organizations on campus to encourage commuter involvement. 

  • Act as liaisons for commuters by meeting regularly with the Assistant Director of Student Engagement
