Commuters at Penn State Behrend come from Erie and the surrounding areas to be part of the Behrend family. They make up a large portion of our student population. Students living off-campus have many opportunities to get involved and engage in campus life. Commuter students may find the Commuter FAQ page and other resources helpful.
Student Leadership and Involvement and the Student Government Association provide students with a variety of involvement options. With more than 140 student organizations, there is something for everyone.
