Commuter Mentoring Program

The Commuter Mentoring Program is for first-year commuter students at The Ohio State University. First-year commuters are paired with a Commuter Liaison who serves as a mentor throughout the entire year. The Commuter Mentoring program’s goal is to increase the commuter student retention rate, increase individual attention provided to first year commuters and to ensure first year commuters are aware of on-campus events and resources. The Commuter Liasion serves as a resource for mentees to go to with all questions and concerns, as well as, connects mentees with campus resources and events while providing regular check-ins and reflections with mentees.
