Commuter Life

The role of commuter life is to ensure that the needs of students who live off campus are acknowledged and addressed and to facilitate the integration of commuter students into community life and student activities.

Commuter life provides a number of services including:

  • Peer advising through trained Commuter Assistants (CAs)
  • Developing "commuter friendly" programs
  • Managing the Corum Student Union, in particular the “Commuter Corner”
  • Collaborating with Cornerstone University Student Government Commuter Senators
  • Commuter small groups

Close to 40%of Cornerstone’s students live off campus. The commuter life program provides opportunities for these non-residential students to be connected to campus life.
