Commuter Chronicle: An Effort to Enhance Commuter Communication in a Traditional Residential Campus Environment.
Henckler, Joyce D.
Commuter, v8 n1 p6 Nov 1982
In an effort to inform commuter students of services and programs on a regular basis, the University of Maine at Orono launched a campaign consisting of a newsletter and orientation sessions targeted directly at commuter students. The newsletter included topics of special interest to commuter students such as housing services, ridesharing, child care and babysitting information, and services to nontraditional students. Orientation sessions and social activities were incorporated into the current New Student Welcome program which occurs prior to each fall semester. Both the newsletter and the orientation sessions proved to be of greater benefit than had been anticipated. (DC)
