The first Commuter Student Appreciation Week will be held from Monday, Feb. 26 to Thursday, March 1.

This is the first official full week for commuter student appreciation, but there have been individual events held in the past, said Rachel Tolliver, coordinator of Student Involvement.

Having a full week of events will reach more commuter students because some commuters are only on campus Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Tuesday and Thursday, Tolliver said.

“If you do a full week, hopefully you’re catching a good portion of students on campus,” Tolliver said.
