Walking

At the College of Charleston, walking is one of the primary modes of transportation that students use to get to class and around the peninsula. Thirty-three percent of students walk to and from campus and an additional four percent of students bike. Walking and biking produce zero emissions and various studies have shown that both are beneficial to your health. The College of Charleston is dedicated to making sure our campus is safe for pedestrians and cyclists.
