4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There's public transportation that you can take to most of the places you want to go. You can even take it to Allendale or Big Rapids to see your friends at GVSU or Ferris. The buses have specific hours and the hours for certain routes change on some days so don't expect to get a ride back to campus from downtown at 2am. Campus safety provides escorts around campus and within a 1 mile radius of campus at night.

Transportation: Transportation at school is pretty good. There are bus stops right outside of campus that are no more than a 5 minute walk from classes. I think it is free for AQ students to ride the bus which is helpful, not to me, but maybe for others.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The public transportation is good around Aquinas because you are right in Grand Rapids. The city of Grand Rapids has a lot of buses traveling around AQ and there are several bus stops located right off campus. It is also pretty cheap to keep a car on campus. It only costs $50 for a parking pass for the year and that is cheaper than most other colleges. It is nice to be right in GR too because you are right near east town, downtown, a mall and lots more. It is easy to get to do what you want in GR.

Transportation: There are buses that are frequently in the area, but you have to figure out the bus schedule because there are usually many stops. Also, they stop running in certain areas after a certain time.

4 College Senior

Transportation: It's a short walk all over campus. I generally enjoy the walk to and fro on our campus. But there is a shuttle for some, U of D - Mercy nursing for one. Aquinas College is an urban-inclusive if that makes sense? Anything you really need is within walking distance.
