Most students live on campus and consequently take most of their trips on foot. Two surveys have been performed to determine the modal split, but they do not meet the stringent sampling requirements of the California South Coast Air Quality Management District's guidelines on how to
measure commuting behavior, so the results are not included here.

All on-campus residence were included as using non-vehicular transportation as recommended in the question. Despite the fact that the two furthest separated buildings on campus are less than 3/4 mile apart, some on-campus residents occasionally drive to campus destinations. This number is offset by the majority of off-campus students that live within a mile of campus and frequently walk or bike to campus.
