Commuter and Transfer Assistants

Just as a Resident Assistant (RA) helps resident students transition to college life, a Commuter Assistant (CA) and Transfer Assistant (TA) does the same for students both undergraduate and graduate students who commute or have transferred to Drexel. The CAs and TAs serve as peer mentors and resources for first year students as they adjust to college life.

Throughout the year, CA's and TA’s will meet regularly with, maintain e-mail contact with, and call new commuter and transfer students. In addition, CA's and TA's host many special events and programs to help commuter and transfer students to become involved and meet other members of the Drexel community.
