As commuter students, we have unique needs that accompany our dynamic lifestyles. Whether your commute is 2 hours or 20 minutes long, it is fundamental to the commuter experience to have a place on campus that can feel like home and serve as a hub for commuter student activity and on-campus engagement. A commuter lounge is much more than just a place to do homework; it is a place to unwind after a long day, to mingle and meet other commuters, to host programs and events, and ultimately to act as a center for students who otherwise have very little ownership over campus spaces. An adequate lounge space is essential to commuter life, but is unfortunately something that Emmanuel College lacks. Despite the array of campus improvements that have occurred over the past year (new building, new furniture in the JYC, library renovations, etc.), little to nothing has been done to improve the standard of living for commuter students on campus. As commuters, it is ultimately up to us to demand fair accommodations so that we might finally feel respected as equal members of the campus community.

Sign this petition if you wish to see a new and improved commuter lounge at Emmanuel College (with no leak in the ceiling, no piano in the corner, no moldy smell, and most importantly, located somewhere that can be visible to the student body). Also feel free to leave comments below in regards to why a new lounge space is important to you or perhaps how improvements to the space might enrich your experience at EC!
