Commuter life has helped provide opportunities for me to be involved here at Vanguard. They have done, and do their very best, to make sure that all commuter students feel included and connected here at school.

Being a commuter during my first year at Vanguard has shown me that Vanguard does truly care about their commuters and does their best to have events during the day when we are on campus. Attending the Summer Commuter Kickoff greatly helped me to feel welcomed to VU and I also met VU Commuters through this event who are now my friends!

My experience as a commuter at Vanguard has been amazing. I get to involve myself with both commuters and residents who want to connect, which makes college a better experience.
