The best way to get around campus is by using your own car, so it's a very good idea to bring your own. Other great ways to get around include to either carpool or borrow a friend's car.

Students can also call a taxi, but no one ever does, unless they really want to get to or from a party where they will be drinking. Even then, they are more likely to get a friend to drop them off and pick them up. The town has buses, but no one uses them. Walking is another good option. Within walking distance, there is a coffee place, a Walgreens, a Food Lion grocery store, a gas station with a mini-mart, a place to grab food, and of course, the liquor store.

Best Ways to Get to the Airport
The only real option is to have a friend drop you off. Leaving your car at the airport for a few days costs way too much money. Your second option is to take a taxi there, but that also costs a good chunk of change.
