Welcome to the EIU Commuter Connections homepage!
Hi! My name is Allie Moran
I am a senior majoring in Communication Studies with a concentration in Public Relations. I am involved in many areas of our campus including the EIU cheerleading squad, Alpha Sigma Tau sorority, Public Relations Student Society of America, the Newman Catholic Center, and various honors societies. In addition to these student organizations, I am also very involved in the Office of New Student Programs as the Freshmen Initiatives Specialist. My job is to help freshmen students, like you, get connected and engaged at EIU.
Sometimes commuter students find it difficult to develop strong connections to the University. At EIU however, we have a program in place called Commuter Connections, designed to maximize commuter students' college experience and help ensure a smooth transition. Our goal is to help you in any way we can, and we promise to provide you with all the connections and support you will need to find success at EIU!
Throughout the semester, commuter students will form a "Commuter Connections Team" with other freshmen commuter students attending EIU. We will meet on a bi-weekly basis, and I will serve as a success coach for students. Each meeting will have a predetermined discussion topic. These meetings will provide you with an opportunity to ask questions, make suggestions, and obtain guidance to ensure success at EIU.
