Should I Take My Car to College?
There are plenty of non-negotiables when deciding what you’re taking to college.
- Cell phone
- School supplies
- Gaming systems
- Dorm room décor
- Coolest clothes
But what about your car? Should your vehicle make the trip with you on this next adventure? There is a lot to consider when making the decision to take your car to college! First and foremost: Does my university allow vehicles on campus?
Once you’ve established that, in fact, your car is as welcome as you are on campus, then there are a few more factors to taking into consideration before making a final decision. Does my college offer an on-campus transportation system or is public transportation available?
Of course, your LOF-Xpress™ Green Team is here to help sort through this big decision! Let us break down a few of the pros and cons to having a car to care for on campus:
Good news first.
- No finding or waiting on rides
- Easy commuting to and from home during breaks & on weekends
- ROAD TRIPS with friends
- Opens up opportunities for employment off campus
Reality check time.
- Cost of parking can be expensive
- Weather – will you have to worry about hail? Snow?
- Feelings of obligation to help out friends with transportation
- Service and maintenance costs
