2 College Freshman

Transportation: It would be beneficial to have a campus bus system that takes you from campus to far away stores since there is quite a bit of required shopping that you cannot do in the immediate area. Instead, professors in University Seminar insisted that we mingle and find friends who we could hitch rides with. I think this is a brilliant idea to promote socializing, but it's still quite inefficient at times because everyone has their own obligations.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There isn't any public transportation, but not needed in such a small town/campus. Most people have their own car or bike.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: If you don't own a car, you have to try to get rides from people you know. There is absolutely no public transportation.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I have my own car so I can go to the grocery store, or anywhere else I need to go just fine.

College Freshman

Transportation: There is no on campus transportation because the campus is so small that you can walk everywhere. But we do have a golf cart system run by the police where if you need a ride you just call and they come get you from anywhere.
