2 College Freshman

Transportation: It would be beneficial to have a campus bus system that takes you from campus to far away stores since there is quite a bit of required shopping that you cannot do in the immediate area. Instead, professors in University Seminar insisted that we mingle and find friends who we could hitch rides with. I think this is a brilliant idea to promote socializing, but it's still quite inefficient at times because everyone has their own obligations.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There isn't any public transportation, but not needed in such a small town/campus. Most people have their own car or bike.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: If you don't own a car, you have to try to get rides from people you know. There is absolutely no public transportation.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I have my own car so I can go to the grocery store, or anywhere else I need to go just fine.

2 College Junior

Transportation: The need for a car on campus is pointless. You will only need a car if you want to go home often. It would also be convenient if you wanted to travel around Ruston for errands. Everything on campus is in walking distance. Everyone parks their car in the morning and then walk to their classes. If you did not want to walk then you could ride your bike. The closest airport is in Monroe which is about a thirty minute drive. There is a bus that stops in Ruston if you wanted to take the bus home. There are not many taxis, if any. Travel in Ruston is pretty limited.
