3 College Freshman

Transportation: Shuttles to the airport are useful. I wish there was a more organized carpool

4 College Freshman

Transportation: You can sign up for shuttles, which are cars or vans that can drive you to malls, movies, or stores. It's free as well to do this. It just depends on how fluid your schedule it. They have a good amount of times to use them, and the time you can stay is a good amount.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are shuttles. I don't bother with them. I'd rather ask for a car.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttle is only able a few days of the week and spots fill up really quickly. If you don't sign up early in the week, you won't get a spot. It is great during breaks, though. If you need to get to the airport, you can. And it's free. There are no other forms of transportation, though.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: We don't really have any sort of transportation at Denison because it's a small campus.

Public transportation is pretty nonexistent at Denison. The thriving metropolis of Granville is, well, not a metropolis. You can walk pretty much everywhere you need to go, both on and off campus. The whole campus can be walked in about 30 minutes. Denison University does provide a shuttle to local malls and the airport every so often, but you have to sign up or you can't go on the shuttle. These shuttles do not have the capacity to hold very many students. It's really quite a stretch to call them public transportation in the traditional sense. There are no buses that run through Granville, but there are buses in Columbus. Transportation to travel home or to another destination other than Granville, such as the airport or Greyhound bus station, are all in Columbus, which is about 45 minutes away. Plan ahead when you need to go somewhere so that you can find a friend to drive you into the city, and you'll be fine. Your best bet is definitely finding a friend who has a car. Some people invest in a bike for campus transportation, but it's pretty rare. Campus is small, and the only students who find a bike to be an absolute necessity are those that live out on the Homestead. There are several bike racks around campus, so bikes are not difficult to store, and you can rent them if you want to just go for a stroll through Granville. Enough people bring cars that it isn't difficult to find a friend to take you places when you need to go farther than the drug store. Go ahead and live life at Denison the good old-fashioned way! It's a lovely place for a walk, and everything honestly is really close.
