1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking sucks because there are never enough spaces for how many permits they hand out. It also cost more to park off campus than on, but if you are in the wrong spot you are immediately ticketed.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is a huge struggle. The lots have space for only half of the complex and there is no overflow except for 12 blocks away. Parking on the street is free, except there is a rule to move your car every three hours. This is extremely impossibly to do between classes, and if you have two classes in a row and can't get there, the fee is $25 to the city of Moorhead every single ticket. The professors take all the available parking lots during the day and leave the students with nothing but parking tickets. Nearly impossible and unfair.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: There is limited space for parking with about 3 parking lots. You only need to register your car so there is no permit cost. If you are not able to park in a lot, you must park on the street where they are monitored very closely. In winter it is especially bad because of snow plows and towing.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: It's nice to not have to pay for parking permits, but parking spaces are limited. People parking in the smaller lots are kind of screwed, and they don't like kids having permits for more than one lot.

2 College Freshman

Parking: There isn't enough space for all the cars and it gets cold walking to your vehicle in the winter.

The good: Getting a parking permit is free for Concordia students. The bad: Finding a parking spot is such a rarity that you may never leave campus again. While that is an exaggeration, it is true that on-campus parking has posed a bit of a problem. Due to lack of space, the lots are relatively small for such a great number of cars. 

Having a car is not a necessity for on-campus living, and many people choose to walk where they need to go. There are officials patrolling the parking lots everyday to make sure students are obeying the parking rules, and students frequently get tickets for parking in lots that their permits are not designated for simply because there were no available spots in another lot. These tickets can sometimes be waived if students file a reasonable explanation as to why it should be cleared. Before arriving on campus, seriously think about whether or not it is necessary to have a car before adding to the madness.
