99

A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:

We administered a survey of student commuting habits via various social media channels in 2017. Students were asked to answer the question of how they usually get to class. All respondents indicated that they walk, which is no surprise to us, given that we are a residential campus with no students living off campus this year and very few commuters. We do know that students do use their vehicles to travel from further away dorms to central campus, especially in the winter. That is why we are reporting 99% here.


The percentage of students that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to get to and from campus::
Percentage (0-100)
Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters) 1
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means 99
Vanpool or carpool 0
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation 0
Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped 0
