2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Can't go anywhere off campus without a car.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Never had to use it because I normally walk to class, but I always see the shuttle buses around campus. They seem very reliable!

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Free campus shuttle that runs every hour 6 days a week

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: There is some public transportation, but largley one depends on friends with a car.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you don't have a car, shuttle buses normally run from 7 in the morning to 12 at night. This is great, unless you need to get off campus. In that case make friends with those who have their own transportation.

Having a car is not mandatory at Berry, but due to how isolated the campus is, it would make your life a lot easier. A simple trip to Wal-Mart, which is only five minutes away, can be difficult without a car. Most students on campus have vehicles, which have caused parking issues after a class of more than 700 freshmen and transfers entered Berry during the 2010-2011 school year. To get around campus, most students walk or ride a bike. If they live on Mountain Campus or at the Ford Complex, students drive to central campus and either park behind the Cage or Science Building. 

There is a shuttle service on campus, but the times are not well known, and although they are visible on campus, they are often unreliable. Instead of waiting for a bus to get to class, try power walking; you'll probably get there in the same amount of time. Rome has transit, but the bus does not come on college campuses, and its hours are typically when students are in class. Students who do have cars are very sympathetic to those who do not, and many offer their peers rides to grocery stores at least once a week.
