SDSU Appreciates You, Commuter Students!

You really rock, commuter students. Every day, you battle traffic and parking or a transit delay to make it to class and get involved on campus. But your challenge is more than just a commute: we understand how difficult it can be to balance school, work and life when you’re not living on campus. In honor of you, the Commuter Resource Center in the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union is hosting a weeklong lineup of fun, including game night, movie night, trivia night and a scavenger hunt.
