Commuter Assistant (CA) Program
The Commuter Assistant Program pairs incoming commuter students with "seasoned" student leaders who volunteer their time to provide support, advice, and camaraderie during the new students' first year.
Commuter Assistants (CAs) work hard to ensure that new commuter students adjust to life at Stony Brook University and have positive and constructive college experiences.
- Ideas and insight on how to adjust to a new, larger, more complex environment

- Mentorship about campus opportunities, University resources, student life, clubs, organizations and activities
