Cassidy Moyer is Commuter of the Month!

Major: Applied Health Sciences/Pre-OT

Commuting from: Lewisberry, PA

Fun fact: I have been volunteering with the local Special Olympics program since 2013.

Favorite thing on campus: I love being able to make new friends and meet fellow commuters from around the area in my classes and at the lounge.







Catch A Break

Howdy Folks!

I am personally so excited for the arrival of Fall. Although it has been a bit toasty out, the leaves are floating around in the air and the Union has apple cider (which is the actual sign of Autumn’s advent, anyway…)


Before everybody goes on Fall Break, here is some Commuter News:

Please note that we DO NOT have classes on October 11th or 12th and RESUME them on Monday, October 14th.

Tonight, we will once again be hosting a volunteer night in the garden. Come by the Grantham Community Garden and spend a couple of hours weeding, planting, and harvesting between 4 and 6pm. All are welcome, and no previous garden experience I necessary. We hope to see you there! FullSizeRender
