College Junior

Transportation: I have a car so I don't utilize the transportation options.

4 College Senior

Transportation: The School is close to a train station that is the next town over. It is about a 15 mins drive and easy to get to. If you need to have a ride over, all you have to do is ask someone. There is also a Panther shuttle that will take you around town and usually runs during bad weather, unless it is too bad, then I usually closes early. Transportation is very easy around campus and town.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The panther shuttle just needs more buses to transfer students to where they need to be.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you don't have a car, you may get frustrated trying to get places.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus shuttles are a great resource for students. They are always moving around on and off campus. I think that students are not used to a lack of taxis or public transportation, so that can definitely be a big transition.
