3 College Freshman

Transportation: We have limited transportation services on campus during times we experience inclement weather, such as the recent ice and snow storms encountered during January and February 2014. Other than the limited service, freshman students walk to classes and other venues on campus. Most upper classmen have cars.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Very affordable. $2 to ride.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: The shuttle services need to be increase to support the number of students on campus. It is not convenient based on the schedule. this should be address immediately.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: A car is very useful in attending Oakwood. There is not a public bus system in the city. Oakwood does provide the shuttle bus to go to Walmart weekly, and it cost $5.00. Sometimes the shuttle bus time is not always great for everybody. Usually you have friends that can help you get where you want to.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I simply drive cars so I wouldn't know.
