Hi, I am Jena Herbst and I am the Commuter Student Support Commissioner for the 2020-2021 school year. I am a third year majoring in Biological Science. This will be my second year a part of ASUCI- last year I was a part of the Commuter Success Commission. I have been commuting to UCI for three years and being a part of the commission last year really excited me to continue to be a part of ASUCI as well as support commuter students. I am inspired for many things planned this year which I hope will be of great assistance to the commuter life at UCI.
Office Hours: Thursdays 10am-11am via Zoom ( https://uci.zoom.us/j/8857568645 )
The Commuter Student Support Commission works to help commuter students by sharing resources, holding events, and having a commuter lounge available to students. Our main focus is to create a close knit commuter community by holding events as well as supporting commuters in any way possible. Another main focus for this school year will be to curate and design a commuter lounge for students to provide a safe space for all commuters.
