3 College Sophomore

Transportation: At JWU CHarlotte we are in the city, so their is always some sort of tranportation. Our gold rush system is free but only runs up and down the same street for 6 blocks- so unless your walk is a straight on trade it doesnt help. The bus fare is quite expensive-2.70$ a day doesnt seem like alot but it adds up. The monthly passes are even worse- 80$ a month, what college student on a budget has that kind of money to blow. Taxis in charlotte run at 2.70$ a mile, and when sitting in traffic in a taxi the meter just goes up an up! Talk about expensive, the meter goes up while the cash in your walet goes down. Luckly the campus is in a 5 minute walking distance from the underclassmen housing and 10 minute walk from the upperclassmen housing, but walking in the mornings alone for a 7:00 class isnt exactly a good idea here. There is also the option of having your car for commuter students- but parking now thats a hassle. The school doesnt charge more than $250 a term (3 months) to park our cars, but they dont have enough parking for nearly half of their students and city parking is a fortune, I pay 95$ a month to keep my car on campus in a non-gated, unsafe city lot- just so I can get to work. So all in all the commute to campus isnt awefull, untill you have to go somewhere, or park your car.
