3 College Sophomore

Parking: Permits are a bit expensive, and all the close parking spots are hard to grab. Everything is really close however so most people just walk and only have their cars to get home and to the grocery store.

Parking has gotten a little better in recent years, even if the prices have gone up. Students can park almost anywhere around campus, although it's a little more sparse around the dorms. Look on the bright side: It's a hilly campus, so the 5- to 10-minute walk from parking lots to campus destinations can be a workout, helping you fight the Freshman 15 in the process

Despite the hassle, you may as well bring your car to campus, as it's the main way students get around successfully. You must purchase a parking permit from the Public Safety office. The yearly fee is $90 per vehicle. You can register yours during orientation or at any time during the semester.
