Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Commuter students are defined as those who live with their parents, spouse, family, or by themselves (Flanagan, 1976) in housing not provided by the institution. They comprise eighty percent of the undergraduate population in American colleges (Stewart and Rue, 1983). Commuters have been dubbed "the neglected majority" (Slade and Jarmul, 1975), because academic and personal counseling, campus activities, and special services have not been provided for these students on a consistent basis.
