Commuter Affairs recognized in national publication

The Office of Commuter Affairs (OCA) has been recognized in the National Clearinghouse for Commuter Programs’ (NCCP) first newsletter from its new location at Northeastern State University in Broken Arrow, Okla.

The NCCP specifically noted the OCA’s apartment fairs held every semester for current and prospective commuters.

“Competition fosters lower prices for students. Also, having most major apartment communities around campus gives students and opportunity to take advantage of specials and moreover, compare and contrast different communities within feet of each other,” the article said.

The article also mentioned how the apartment fairs help community relations, and how feedback from both students and the apartment communities about the fairs has been overwhelmingly positive.

Commuter Affairs Director Larry Provost said that the OCA has expanded its outreach with orientations, carpool programs, sermon series by the commuter pastor, and even special commuter tailgating events at football games.

“We have links on our website to help commuters to find a local church or to purchase commuter meal plans, as well as our commuter newsletter,” Provost said. “We have a lot of things to offer.”

Commuter students have a lot of information made available to them through the OCA, such as transportation, housing, parking, campus events and many other resources. For more information about programs and services offered by the OCA, visit their website at, or call 434-592-3991.
