3 College Freshman

Transportation: Because the school is in the middle of no where you would need a car to get to any source of other transportation. Most kids drive home or get a ride from another student.

1 College Junior

Transportation: Almost no transportation. They recently came out with a shuttle that runs twice a week, but only goes to shopping areas. Unfortunately not many people use it anyways because most have cars so I don't think it will change much. They also don't run past 10, and there is only one so if it gets too crowded you have to wait 20-50 minutes depending on where you are. I've never seen it get too crowded though but it is possible I think it only sits around 10.

Transportation: sucks. the school is too small to have transportation

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Be Open Minded – Nichols College is located on more than 200 acres of rolling hills in Dudley, Mass., a small Central Massachusetts community just 20 minutes south of Worcester. We are within an hour's drive of Boston, Springfield, Hartford, and Providence. The greater Worcester area, home to 13 colleges and universities, is a vibrant and creative region in the midst of an exciting revitalization. And the country is taking notice: historic Worcester has been named among the top 10 best small cities to live in by Forbes magazine. Whether it's catching a hot concert at the DCU Center, sampling restaurants on Shrewsbury Street, exploring the region's many cultural offerings.Majority of the people can find rides, carpooling is not uncommon.

Transportation: Getting Around???Not – there is no transportation to get around. if you don't have a car you are stuck. they need to work on having some sort of bus/shuttle to get you to a transportation station. Even if they have set hours.
