Club Feature: CANS
This weeks UMSG featured club is CANS!
CANS is a student representative board that represents the commuter and non-traditional students. This includes people living off campus, parents and even veterans. They work closely with the staff of the commuter lounge to make a “second home” for those commuters that spend most of their day on campus and are looking for a nice place to sit and do homework and even make some friends if they’d like.
CANS meets every Friday from 3 pm-3:30 pm in the commuter lounge located in the Wade Center. They usually just choose a table and meet at it and anyone is welcome to join if they’d like.
CANS hosts one big event and then helps with a few others. The big event that CANS provides is a pancake breakfast to all commuters and non-trad students once a month. Another event that CANS helps host is First Friday Bagels. Every first Friday of the month, we get dozens of bagels for the commuters and non-traditional students. Finally, CANS helps host both commuter week and non-traditional week.
CANS has one major goal for this year and that is to expand the group size! Right now we have a few dedicated members and we are slowly expanding the count. We want to expand because that will allow us to do more for the commuters and non-traditional students and also so that we can hear more from the general commuter populace.
