2 College Sophomore

Parking: I do not own a car, currently. I walk to school, but I am not far away at all. I would recommend that anyone going to this school either pay the big ticket of living on campus or have a car, because there are not many sidewalks near the school unless you walk through the large unlit park behind the school...which is what I do. Walking around is just overall dangerous.

4 College Freshman

Parking: There are a lot of parking spaces here. There would have to be a huge event to not have parking. All of the dorms have parking in front of them and there are extra lots to park in if the others become full.

4 College Junior

Parking: Not really that bad. Just maybe a bit of a walk

4 College Sophomore

Parking: No cost and can always find a parking spot

1 College Senior

Parking: Parking can be horrible, especially if your a commuter like i am. I get there early just so i can make sure im close to the building i need to be at. I've noticed it doesn't matter what year your in parking is horrible regardless especially if you commute its the worst.

Parking can be a pain, but it usually isn't an issue for students. Students should still be vigilant of where they park, though. Because the Campus Police are always walking, driving, or biking around campus, parking violators are caught and fined. 

Cedar Crest has many parking lots for students, in addition to the places where students are allowed to park near academic buildings and residence halls. In the winter, students complain about the walk from the lots to their classes, but roadways and sidewalks are kept clear and well salted in the case of the snow.
