Narrator: Every month, Commuter Connections provides off-campus students with tips on how to become successful here at Salisbury University and ways on how to get them involved on-campus.

Shannon Henry: So, Commuter Connections is really about advocacy. We really want to make sure that we are the voice for commuter students. We want to help them get acclimated to the university uhm…give them ways to stay here. A lot of times when you live off-campus you are not involved in on-campus activities. So that is just our way of getting them to come on campus and stay here so that they can get the full college experience.

Narrator: For the month of October, the Commuter lunch series covered the topic “Backpacks to Briefcases” with the speaker Becky Emory from the office of Career Services.

Becky Emery: We talk about how to get internships. If they are freshmen maybe choosing a major and a minor or adding a minor if you are a sophomore and maybe a little bit about studying abroad. Then, getting into resumes, internships and then the job hunt.

Narrator: Commuter Connections is a great way for students to get involved in the Salisbury community. This is Erin Kayhill reporting for SUtv news.
