Nashville State has a perfect location for the campus to become “Bicycle Friendly”.

  1. It is on the Music City Bikeway.
  2. It has a greenway that runs through it.
  3. All of its 10,000 students, faculty, and staff get to campus by some means of transportation.
  4. The college teaches architectural design courses and emphasizes LEED principles. (Leadership in Engineering and Environmental Design)
  5. One class this Spring designed a “bike-friendly campus” plan for NSCC.
  6. The obesity rate in Nashville is very high.
  7. The college should be encouraging active transportation. It is cheaper in a lot ways than everyone driving cars.
