Transportation: There are many ways to get around campus. There are now buses that take students around campus, and then they have shuttles that you can call to take you to specific places.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The new bus system is nice, and basically everything you need is within walking distance anyway. Parking is hell, so maybe you don't need a car that much.
