10 Tips That Will Make For Commuter Students To Make College Easier

As I’ve said many times before on this site, I commuted to college rather than going away to school. After spending four years as a college commuter, I learned a few things, one being that commuting can be very isolating and lonely (if you let it be) and two being that commuting takes a lot more effort than you think it does.

Throughout college, I found myself in many commuting disaster situations: locking my keys in my car, locking my keys in my car while my car was running, missing class due to the fact that there were no parking spots left, missing class because of weather-related issues, missing class because I forgot to get gas… you get it. My point is, there are plenty of ways to make your commuting experience miserable. But why would you want to do that? You wouldn’t, obviously.

If you’re starting college this year as a commuter, there are some tips and tricks you need to be aware of in order to make your experience the best it can possibly be. Trust me on these – you won’t regret reading them.

Do you commute to school? Are you going to in the future? If you do commute, what are some tips that I missed? Tell me in the comments.
