Commuter / Transfer / Non-Traditional

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”—Pele, Soccer Champion


This community offers a space for people who identify as or are interested in building the inclusivity, relationships, and support for commuters and nontraditional students. This community offers resources, programs, events, and networking opportunities that can enrich a student’s academic experience and promote their success.

The Commuter/Transfer/Nontraditional Identity/Affinity Community brings together faculty, staff, alums, and community members who understand that this community has unique needs in its transition into The Forest—yet this community also has unique experiences that can contribute to the culture of Drew. This community is designed as a space to explore, learn, reflect on, and support each student’s path during their academic development.

If you are interested in participating in and/or supporting this community, please feel free to share your experiences, provide resources that may support students’ pathways to development, connect with students to offer insight and support, and inform the broader community of internships, community engagement, or job opportunities.
