3 College Freshman

Transportation: Its far away to get, all the way at the other end of campus for me, so that means a good walk, and if it is cold outside don't even think about it.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I guess there's a bus line... I haven't really used it more than once yet. I usually rely on friends to drive me places. I'm originally from the boonies, so I have no idea how to use the bus system and I'm still figuring it out.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I don't know much about transportation other than by car, as I've lived in the city my whole life so I've always just driven where I need to go.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Transportation services for Concordia students are available, but some are much better than others. The beautiful thing about the bus transit system for the surrounding area is that it is free for college students. With that in mind, however, many people comment that the bus stops are far away from campus and buses pass by too infrequently to be useful. The alternative is to either bring a personal vehicle to school or hail a taxi. The taxi service is not terribly expensive, and most places of importance are within a few miles.

If none of the above are acceptable forms of transportation, many students do have cars on campus and are willing to let others ride with them if they pay for gas every once in a while. But students are, for the most part, comfortable with all of the activities and services on campus. Transportation to places off campus is only necessary when students feel the need to embrace Fargo’s nightlife or to stock up on toiletries on the weekends.
