Commuter Services

The Office of Commuter Student Services believes it is vital to develop a sense of connectedness and community for commuter students. With this goal in mind, the Office of Commuter Student Services strives to enhance the quality of the educational experience of commuter students, as well as to increase awareness within the University community of and to advocate for commuter students' needs.

To reach this goal, the Office utilizes social programming, educational workshops, and dynamic outreach programs to meet commuter students' needs for social interaction and for personal, intellectual, leadership, and life skill development.

Please contact Bernie Strausbaugh, Coordinator of Student Activities and Commuter Student Services with questions or concerns at 330-490-7173 or bstrausbaugh@walsh.edu. The Office of Commuter Student Services is located in the basement of the David Campus Center.
