It need not be difficult for non-residential, local students to stay informed and connected. New commuter students from Staunton and surrounding areas will find support and networking opportunities among each other and upper-class commuter students. With a variety of ways to get involved on campus, Suburbanites will immerse themselves in the college community to become vibrant and active members of Mary Baldwin both in and out of the classroom.

This Gateway helps the commuter student navigate the first-year transition and become fully involved in the college community, while maintaining her ties and responsibilities home.
