The average adult walking speed is 4.3 km/h. In a half-hour, you can cover over 2 km.

If your 2 km. drive to campus took ten minutes (including finding parking, and walking to your building), for an investment of an additional 20-minutes, you get 30 minutes of exercise, save the cost of gas, parking and wear and tear on your vehicle, and don't need to pay for parking.
