Commuter Assistants

What's a Commuter Assistant? 
Commuter Assistants (or CAs) are experienced upper-class commuter students who are linked with incoming freshman commuter students and act as personal guides for their entire first year at NYU. CAs are divided by school so they are familiar with information that is unique to the specific schools. Throughout the semester CAs will host programs and send weekly emails providing students with helpful updates, suggestions for things to do, and information on available resources.

 
When will I find out who my CA is? 
All incoming freshman are assigned a Commuter Assistant and will be hearing from them during the first week of August. First-year students will meet their Commuter Assistant at the Commuter Overnight Retreat or at the mandatory Commuter Student Welcome during Welcome Week on Monday, August 31.
 
If you have any questions before you hear from your CA, contact:
Program Administrator/CA Supervisor, Long Wu at long.wu@nyu.edu
