College freshmen at many schools in the United States aren't allowed to have cars. It is said that it is to keep the students at the school so that they can be independent and safe. I believe that it is against the rights of college freshmen to not be able to have cars on campus for the simple reason that they are freshmen.

Not having a car is really not a big deal as a freshman at a university. Most universities require that freshmen live on campus, ensuring immersion into the culture and community of peers and environment. The usual debate over cars for freshmen is an argument over freedom and rights. Well, there is still plenty of ways to travel. In fact, freshmen, not having a car, will be forced to use public transportation and find other means of getting around. Freshmen, whom are from other areas, will become better accustomed to their campus and surrounding if they must depend on public transportation, cycling, walking, or other non-personal forms of transportation. Lastly, I believe that not having a car would also intrigue students to stay on campus more often and increase interest in the local happenings, group meet ups, extra curricular activities, and other things happening right on campus. It could inspire people, who would not normally do these things, find a reason to do them.
