STUDENT SURVIVAL GUIDE '08: Surviving without a car 

No car? No problem! No matter what college you attend, what you need is close by

BY JESSICA BAKEMAN

Having a car is a luxury most of us take for granted. But now that you're a poor college student, perhaps in a new town and alone for the first time in your life, that luxury is probably a distant memory. For all of you new to Rochester -- or to the stranded or clueless already in our midst --here's a directory of where you can find whatever you could possibly need just by using your feet. All locations are about a mile or less from the center campuses of the respective schools.
