Hi there! My name is Valerie Nguyen and I am the Commuter Student Support Commissioner for the 2021-2022 school year. I am currently a third year studying Biological Sciences at UCI. Due to the pandemic, I have only had two quarters of experience commuting; however, I am excited to navigate this uncertain journey with everyone and help make the commuter space one that is safe, inclusive, and welcoming to everyone!
The Commuter Student Support Commission focuses mainly on increasing the quality of life for commuter students by sharing on-campus resources, holding events, and maintaining an accessible commuter lounge. By any means possible, our goal is to create a close-knit community and an enriching college experience for our commuter population.
– Survey commuter students to better understand needs and issues within the population
– Promote initiatives (such as Zot Adopt) that help foster community
– Serve as a liaison between students and Transportation
– Maintain the commuter lounge
