A New Crossing For Off-Campus and Commuter Students

Rondileau Student Union is a form of home away from home to many different students across Bridgewater State University’s campus. It houses many different organizations— including Greek Life, Program Council, The Center of Student Engagement, LGCIE, and many more. The Office of the Off-Campus and Commuter Student Services (OCCSS), previously located in East Campus Commons in the hallway next to the bookstore, is now in room 007 of RSU and recently had their Grand Opening this past week.

“We knew that the best place to be to provide the best recourses would be in the student union,” said Shelly Keniston (she/her), the director of Off-Campus and Commuter Student Services.

ECC is surrounded by residence halls, where there is not a lot of foot traffic from Off-Campus and Commuter students, according to Keniston. RSU has an increased level of foot traffic which makes the office more accessible and allows for more room for commuter students to come in, hang out, ask any questions, and get the recourses that they may need.

The OCCSS is currently working with Student Government Association to provide microwaves across campus for commuter students who may bring lunch with them from home. This is one of many things that OCCSS can help with and advocate for.

If you find yourself on the ground floor of RSU, stop by room 007 and take a look around!
