2 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have a bus that will take you to local areas but it only runs at inconvenient times. There is a mall in walking distance from the U and many restaurants as well. You can't have your car until junior year but the best option is to bring one and park it on a side street. To get home, many people take the Martz bus, especially those people living in NY or NJ. I live further away so the bus doesn't really cater to my needs

Transportation: Getting around town isn't a problem. There is a small mall within walking distance, along with a few restaurants and anything you need really. I didn't even consider needing a car all semester. However going back home is a problem, there is few options to getting out of Scranton.

Transportation: no one uses the shuttles here, they bring you to the mall, which you can walk to. Also there is a bus station far-but walkable distance that can take you to nyc
