Meet the Commuter Assistant

Commuter Assistants are current Michigan Tech commuter students who are trained to provide peer support, answer questions, plan networking events, and more. They can be great resources for information, campus news, and friendship—take a minute and get to know our current Commuter Assistant.

Erica LeClaire

 Year: Fourth

 Major: History

 Campus Involvement: Alpha Gamma Delta Women's Fraternity, Women's Programming Committee and the Anthropology Club.

 Favorite Thing about Commuting to Tech: Commuting makes it easier to take a break from school for a little bit.  You are able to give your mind a rest when you need to because you aren't always on campus.

 Where you park: Either in St. Al's commuter lot or the SDC lot.

Why you chose Michigan Tech: Coming from the Houghton area, I knew I could get a more personal experience at Michigan Tech.  I've been able to get to know the faculty better and better understand the material.

What does your future hold? I will be continuing my education by studying for a master's degree in a Heritage Preservation Field.

Advice to first-year students: Get involved.  It can be easy to sit back and not do anything but getting involved in different organizations and groups can open up many opportunities.
