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 84 students, finding that:
34 commute sustainably
50 drive

With a total of 1,715 students for Fall 2014, it was found that 1,637 commute sustainably while 78 drive. Thus, 95.4% of students commute sustainably.
