    Hello all I would like to first and foremost confirm or refute my fear that plebes are not allowed motor vehicles on campus. Correct?

    Also what are the vehicle policies for each successive year for mids?

    Plebes and Youngsters are not allowed to drive motor vehicles on the yard. The second class can drive on the yard but are not allowed to park their cars there, and firsties can park in designated areas.
