In an earlier post, we suggested some of the considerations parents and students might want to discuss as they decide whether or not the student will take a car to campus. Many colleges prohibit first-year students from bringing cars, but at some point during the college years, your student may want to consider whether or not to take a car to school.
More and more colleges are encouraging their students to leave their cars home. As more students bring cars to school, parking on many campuses is becoming a serious issue. Colleges and universities are also trying to do their part to institute policies which are environmentally friendly. So if your college student is considering whether or not to take a car to school, he might want to investigate the alternatives available.
