I have been a commuter my entire college career so far, so I had to adjust in a different way than expected. Most of my friends left home for other endeavors, so I had a new life to adjust to even though I wasn’t moving. There really is a disconnect between the feeling of community for those who commute and those who live on campus, but it’s really easy to overcome once you find your own community within college. I love being a commuter, but I do know people who don’t enjoy it and still feel some sort of disconnect between that and campus life. With college, you get back what you put into it, so as long as you’re making an effort to be involved and make connections, you should be fine regardless!
