4 College Junior

Transportation: Many students have cars because 75% of the school are commuters.

However, the campus is very small, so it's very easy for students to walk from their dorm to anything else on campus. There is a grocery store, drugstore, frozen yogurt shop, hair salon, and several restaurants literally right across the street. So, residents often walk to that shopping center. There is also a bus stop across the street.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The campus is accessible by the local public transportation system, and although there is a bus stop at the corner of the campus, the buses are notorious for arriving too late or too early.   

Most of the things that students need are within walking distance. Cedar Crest offers van transportation to events sponsored by the College. In general, students say that it's preferable to have your own car or at least to have a friend with a car. Carpooling is also a great option.
