3 College Freshman

Transportation: I have a car because I live off campus and have to drive to the campus every day. If you live on campus, you don't need a car to get to the other buildings, but you do need one if you want to do some errand running around town.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The public transportation isn't really applicable it doesn't come near the campus at all and the campus has no provided transportation.

College Junior

Transportation: I have a car and found it to be very necessary for driving to church, sorority meetings, and going home. I never tried the transit systems but heard that they are often late and not dependable.

College Freshman

Transportation: Campus is small enough that transportation isn't strictly necessary.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Having a car on campus is pretty important. If you are not bringing a car to campus, make sure that you know someone who does, otherwise it will be pretty boring having to stay on campus all the time.

San Angelo is located in the middle of Texas, and with the city's population not being so high, public transportation is not that great. The ASU campus is small enough that transportation is not a big issue, as one can walk across the whole campus in 15–20 minutes. There are also a few stores and restaraunts within walking distance of the campus. Even H-E-B (the favorite grocery store) is technically within walking distance, though to some a mile may be too much of a hike for shopping.

However, if the student wants to leave campus, there are very few options. There is a bus stop on campus, but with little demand for buses in San Angelo, there are not many. The schedule states that a bus will be at the ASU stop at ten past every hour if people are there waiting. Taxis are another option if a student wishes prompter, but more expensive, service. The best option is to make friends with people who have cars and ask politely for a ride or tag along if someone is going to the same place.
