Connecting to FDU as a Commuter

Timothy Zubov


Commuter and residence life are two distinct experiences on the metro campus. While residential students have the advantage of proximity and constant immersion in campus activities, commuters often need to be more intentional in seeking out spaces and opportunities to connect.

Fortunately, there are several hubs around campus designed with this in mind. The Fitness Center, for instance, is more than just a place to exercise; it’s a lively gathering spot. Similarly, the Student Union Building serves as a central nexus for students of all backgrounds. Here, commuters can dive deep into campus life, make lasting connections, and truly feel a part of the university community.

Today, Fairleigh Dickinson University hosted the annual Commuter Brunch in the multipurpose room of the Student Union Building from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm.

This event, thoughtfully organized for the commuter population, aimed to bridge the gap between commuting and residential students. With a spread of delectable food, engaging activities, and opportunities for mingling, the brunch provided an excellent platform for students to share their experiences, stories, and aspirations. As Fairleigh Dickinson University continues to facilitate such inclusive events, the line between commuter and residence life is slowly, but surely, becoming more blurred.
