3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Being a commuter has its perks, but the main bad thing is the rising cost of gas. I can spend $50/week just driving to and from the University. Part of this is because my shared vehicle is a gas guzzler, but it also has to do with the fact that gas pries are so high. The airport is probably about a 25 minute drive from campus for those who travel long distance, and there are many TANK buses that come to campus.I do not believe there are any passenger trains near this area, although it would be extremely cool if there were. Ride sharing is a great way to commute because you do not need to pay for gas every time, and you get the company of a friend while driving to and from school.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are a couple busses that go through and drop off on campus. Last I checked, you can ride TANK busses free with your NKU student ID. Taxis are pointless; they drive slow and cost too much to get you where you need to go.

College Junior

Transportation: I don't use campus transportation.

3 College Junior

Transportation: There is a shuttle that runs most of the day and is free to students and faculty.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: I drive myself to school and I have many friends who would be willing to drive me if I needed it. There is also a shuttle that goes around campus.
