Office of Commuter Services



Association of Commuting Students

ACS is a student-run organization that provides a forum for off-campus and commuting students to voice concerns and issues that affect those who do not live on campus.  It is also a channel for off-campus and commuter students to sponsor PhilaU activities and events in order to integrate with other members of the campus community. 

Commuter Leader Position

Commuter Leaders (CLs) are upper class off-campus students who serve as resources and guides for first year commuters.  We recruit energetic, enthusiastic, and school spirited off-campus students to help newer commuters connect to the campus community.  CLs are hired for the full academic year and are awarded with semester stipends.  Students also have the opportunity to earn class credit in lieu of monetary rewards.  CL recruitment is in April.

Emerging Leaders

This co-curricular certificate program has been designed to help new students understand learning experiences in co-curricular life and their relationship to classroom work; to assist students in becoming effective leaders on campus and in the community at Philadelphia University; and to encourage personal growth and development through active participation in discussion, exercises, and workshops.  PhilaU faculty and staff throughout campus teach in the ELP curriculum.


Leadership Engagement Assessment Development Program (LEAD)

LEAD is designed for upper-class students looking for leadership opportunities that will contribute to their personal and professional development.  The majority of the program consists of workshops that participants elect to attend based on their individual interests and leadership goals.  Other aspects of the program include support and guidance from a University leadership mentor and completing a 360° leadership assessment tool.

Student Organizations

With over 50 student organizations, PhilaU should have what you are looking for.  If we don't, we have all the resources you need to start your own organization!
