Cars or No Cars?
Imagine staying on a huge campus like Mississippi State without any transportation. From personal experience, it is very inconvenient and depressing. Many campuses across the United States do not allow freshmen to have cars their first year. Whether or not freshman should have cars their first year in college is a debatable topic around the world and in my household. Some critics think they should and some think they should not. Many people think students should be able to have cars and some think they should not. Colleges that restrict freshmen from having a car their first year, claim that they are not fully responsible. But, there are some freshmen who are actually mature enough to have one. Because all students are not the same, freshman should be allowed to have cars for convenience, emergencies, and transportation.to and from home.
First of all, freshman should have a car on campus their first year because they are very convenient. He or she may need to go to the grocery store, which is not in walking distance and their own car would really solve that problem. Another way is there may be a party or event that is off campus and there is no one to ride with. There might be a day when he or she has to go off campus for any given reason. But, the person who he or she always rides with is probably gone or sleeping. Their own car would come in handy at this point of time because no one wants to have to sit around and wait until someone else moves to get what he or she has to get done. A typical freshman will not just want to sit in their rooms all day and feel isolated. So of course a car would rescue them from a boring campus life.
Not only is having a car the first year in college convenient, having their own car is good in case of an emergency also. For example, there may be a death in the family and he or she will need to be home as soon as possible especially if the person is their mom or dad....
