3 College Junior

Transportation: Staunton provides free transportation through town to college students, but without a vehicle, long distance transportation can be difficult.

3 College Senior

Transportation: There is no campus-based transportation, but that's because it's a very small campus, all within a 2-3 block radius. You won't have to walk far. There is a city-wide trolley. It only runs every 20 minutes or so, but it goes right past the campus on two sides and it's completely free.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: You mostly have to have your own car in order to get around and go places that you need.

1 College Sophomore

Transportation: transportation is the worst, we are far away from everything and there is no way to get there if you do no have a car

College Freshman

Transportation: There is no campus transportation. The campus is small enough that it's usually fairly easy to get around on foot, but it would be nice to have a shuttle to the far side of campus (where the arts center and physical activities center is). The arts center is a 15 minute walk - mostly up a steep hill - from the side of campus where most classes are, so if you're a theater, art, or music major, you'll find yourself frequently wishing for some kind of shuttle. It can also be a hassle if you work out or are involved in athletics. If you have knee problems, as I do, it can be a struggle to get around, but I've made it work.
