TOPIC OF THE MONTH | PARKING | FOOD | GET INVOLVED! | RESOURCES
Welcome to the Commuter Center, where our goal is to make your
experience at UWSP enjoyable and memorable! As a commuter student it is
still possible to get the full college experience. This Webpage has been
designed with you in mind to provide you with information and resources
to make this possible. We encourage you to
take advantage of
all that UWSP has to offer and to get involved through student
organizations, employment opportunities and events.
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point has many places to hang
out in between classes and events. Some of the top spots to hang out are
the LRC, Brewhaus, Dreyfus University Center, CPS Cafe, Food for
Thought Cafe, Lower DeBot, and Noel Fine Arts Center, just to name a
There are also lots of things to see and do in the City of Stevens
Point. Take some time to check out the city and all it has to offer like
disc golfing at Mead Park, a variety of restaurants and shops, movie
theatres, nature trails, and so much more!
National studies indicate the success a student has in college is
directly related to how "connected" they are to their campus. Living
off-campus can be comforting as you enter this new part of your life,
but we also want to encourage you to try some new and different things!
UWSP offers TONS of opportunities to all students! Take a look at our
"Get Involved" section to see upcoming events.
At the very least, we encourage you to attend the Involvement
and Volunteer Fair on Thursday, September 15. Commuter students are
invited to meet at the south entrance of the Allen Center to connect
with other commuter students and then to walk over to the Dreyfus
University Center (DUC). The Involvement & Volunteer Fair will have
over 100 booths from student organizations, campus departments, and
local non-profit agencies who are interested in recruiting new members
Other ways to get connected at UWSP:
- Join the club related to your major
- Participate in intramurals
- Get an on-campus job (www.uwsp.edu/centersi/sieo - then select QUEST)
