3 College Sophomore

Transportation: basically you can walk if you live close i walk most time.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: I was told it was a bus to take you around places, but there isn't any bus. If you don't have a car or a friend on campus who owns a car and would be willing to take you around, you are out of luck.

Transportation: The Charlotte airport is 56 minutes from campus. There is a LOCAL service called Hickory Hops (approx $40) that can take you to the airport, but this is not campus provided. In extreme cases or emergencies, campus security can come pick you up and take you back to campus. There is now a new public bus line that the city of Hickory implemented, but I have not utilized it or know its stops in proximity to the campus.

College Junior

Transportation: There isn't a need for public transportation, for the most part. If you need to go somewhere, there are buses around that you can check the schedule for, but the campus isn't large enough to require transportation. If you need to get off-campus, though, you need to arrange for a ride, unless you bring your own vehicle.
