JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

The majority of East Tennessee State University students – approximately 80 percent – are commuters, and an upcoming event will help these students learn more about campus services and area businesses that could benefit them.

A Commuter Fair will be held Thursday, April 11, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Amphitheatre adjacent to the D.P. Culp University Center.  In case of rain, the event will be moved to the following day – Friday, April 12 – at the same time and location.

This year’s fair will feature a “carnival” theme, with music, games, booths and human bowling for participants to enjoy.  A variety of ETSU departments, offices and organizations, as well as area businesses, will be on hand to provide details on services they offer.  Commuter safety information will also be available, and $400 in gas cards and other prizes will be given away.

The Commuter Fair is sponsored by Adult, Commuter and Transfer Services at ETSU.  For more information or special assistance for those with disabilities, contact Jennifer Rice at (423) 439-4899.
