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!
Office Hours: Thursday 2-3 pm (In-Person)
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
