Transportation: There are classes in a downtown location and students are able to take the shuttle to class. Also, there are shuttles to Wal-Mart every Wednesday night, but I do wish there were shuttles to the off-campus workout facility as well as local sporting events.

Transportation: The transportation options at Joliet Central High School consisted of many bus routes due to the large amount of students. There were also activity buses that ran about two shifts every night for the students who played sports or who were enrolled in other extracurricular activities. I rated this with a C because although it is certainly not horrible, it is not the best it can be either. Therefore I give the transportation an average grade.

Transportation: Public transportation is available in Joliet. There is a pace bus that goes around the Joliet area, it even takes you to the mall. As for the St. Francis shuttles, they run every thirty minutes. It's also free. If you arrive on the train, you could call St. Francis Security when you pass New Lenox,because this gives them a good amount of time to drive to the train station to pick you up. This service is also free.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Fort Wayne has an extensive public transport system. There are multiple apartments within walking distance, and bus routes as well. As a physician assistant student, however, it is required to have a car to get to and from clinical rotations.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: At Saint Francis a lot of the student population represents commuter students and there is exceptional parking options around campus. There are also other options for on-campus students such as the bus but there are plenty of conveniences close by and on campus for the students.
