4 College Freshman

Transportation: There is a lot of public transportation, such as buses, but we have never been fully informed about costs and how to access it. However, this information is probably not hard to find out. ACES is also a great program that takes you to any location on campus at night, so you don't have to walk.

College Freshman

Transportation: See, as a really small, really compact school, Augustana doesn't really have the need for a great transportation system. Rather, they have a small service that runs to drive kids on crutches and drives around late at night to bring kids home safe to their dorms on weekends.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: we get free bus passes for the surrounding area and late night campus transportation is usually prompt

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: You have to organize it but it's available

4 College Senior

Transportation: There are buses always running by our school. We also have our own escort service at night so people are not walking anywhere alone. We also have a program that picks up students and takes them to the mall if they don't have cars. Parking can be hard to find in certain places though
