Transportation: Ok to getting to place to place, but it is best to have a personal car to go places.

Transportation: basically you can walk if you live close i walk most time.

Transportation: I was told it was a bus to take you around places, but there isn't any bus. If you don't have a car or a friend on campus who owns a car and would be willing to take you around, you are out of luck.

Transportation: The Charlotte airport is 56 minutes from campus. There is a LOCAL service called Hickory Hops (approx $40) that can take you to the airport, but this is not campus provided. In extreme cases or emergencies, campus security can come pick you up and take you back to campus. There is now a new public bus line that the city of Hickory implemented, but I have not utilized it or know its stops in proximity to the campus.
