Even as a commuter, I tend to spend a lot of time of campus either working on homework and conducting extracurricular activities but, I also spend a lot of time hanging out with friends on campus. There is plenty to do on campus after class hours are over. While many commuters usually come to their classes and then go home, there are others who spend time on campus dealing with their homework using the Mac computers in the library, getting paid to conduct on-campus jobs, or just spending time on campus with friends.
For student’s who wish to engage in some studying after classes are done, the Robert and Mary Rita Murphy Stump Library offers a wide variety of services including upgraded mac computers that can be used to satisfy all student’s academic needs. There is also a large variety of books and articles that can be used as extra study materials for students or entertainment.
If a student is interested in looking for some extra cash and have some free time after classes are over, I suggest attempting to obtain one of the on-campus jobs that the university provides to students, primarily those eligible for work-study. A student can start applying for one of the jobs at www.cougarjobs.com. Set up an account and start applying.
Lastly, if a student is just looking for a place to relax, the school offers a university lounge in the below the warde academic center where students can access a coffee shop as well as a comfortable sitting area. There is also the cafeteria if a student wishes to grab a bite to eat. Also, if a student has some resident friends, they can join them in their dorm in one of the 6 residence halls.
There is so much to do on campus that there really is much time for boredom if you can find a way to bind your time. So have fun and enjoy life
