Commuter Pros and Cons

Mar 23, 2016

As the school year comes to a close and registration opens for the fall semester, chances are that you're already thinking about plans for next year (that is, if you can take your mind off of finals!) If you're wondering whether or not to be a commuter student, I've compiled a quick overview of the pros and cons to help you with your decision making.


1. Distance. Depending on far you live from Kings, this can make a difference in how much time you spend on campus and how you plan your day. Keeping distance in mind is really important (trust me, I drive 50 minutes to get here every day!)

2. Social life. This one can be both a pro and a con. If you are a commuter, chances are that you have many connections outside of Kings, and so not living at school isn't really a big deal. But if you are looking to make those connections more quickly here at Kings, this can be a struggle. It's intimidating at first, being a commuter student, but I've found that if you just make the effort, making connections with people is not as hard as it seems. 



1. Connections. Being a commuter means that you are an active part of different communities, and you get to be connected to people in a variety of different ways, of which Kings is just one aspect.

2. The Commuter Program!! I may be a tad biased, but I really do believe that the commuter program is a great opportunity for students to connect in fun and meaningful ways.
