Undergrad commuting was calculated by: finding out the total number of off campus houses that are granted on-campus parking passes because they either lived off-campus or were part-time students.
1445 students live on campus
33 students live off-campus or are part-time students.

Graduate commuting was calculated by conducting a survey of the School of Theology. 12.66% of the SOT completed the survey. It was calculated that 40% commute sustainably and 60% drive. We thus applied this calculation to the total number of 79 students, finding that:
31 commute sustainably
48 drive

With a total of 1,557 students for Fall 2012, it was found that 1,476 commute sustainably while 81 drive. Thus, 94.8% of students commute sustainably.
