3 College Junior

Transportation: the bus is the most accessible, timeless, and flexible mode of transportation. Students can receive a discounted pass but most have their own cars to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: It doesn't take very long to get anywhere on campus, though you can rent an inexpensive bike if you really need to get somewhere quickly. There are two buses into Olympia that arrive often throughout the day, though it would be nice if they ran a little later into the evening.

4 College Junior

Transportation: We have a transit bus that drops students right in front. I drive and carpool. The school offers great advantages for those who choose this option.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: The bus will get you anywhere you need to go. The bus makes stops thoughout campus so its very convenient. It is free to ride the bus with a student ID. Cars are good if you live off Camus but not nessisary.

5 College Senior

Transportation: Public transportation is free as long as you're attending a class, and you can get to just about anywhere in town
