4 College Senior

Parking: There are plenty of places to park on-campus (there are actually no options for off-campus parking). The parking lots reserved for students who live on campus often fill up and students are obligated to park in the commuter or overflow lots which are a bit further from the dorms. However, there is never a shortage of parking spots, especially when taking into consideration the large lot adjacent to the athletic center.
Permits cost a mere $75 per year and that cost does cover an additional vehicle other than the "primary" one.
Campus Safety does ticket vehicles which do not have permits or that are parked illegally. Depending on the offense, they will give either a warning or fine.
In all honesty, unless you happen to be the sort of person who absolutely needs to be independent, a vehicle on campus is not necessary (at least for the first year or two). There are plenty of students with vehicles who are willing to shuttle others around to the local churches, stores, restaurants and coffee shops whenever necessary. The exception is for juniors and seniors who are completing their internship credits as having personal transportation is often needed, although there is a bus which stops not too far from campus.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Sometimes parking is a pain because in some parking lots there are multiple dorm buildings parking there and these lots also tend to be the smallest lots, which can be annoying. Parking permits only cost $75 for the whole year which is pretty reasonable for a college campus.

4 College Junior

Parking: Cornerstone University is beginning to run out of parking spaces, but over-all the lots are close to classroom buildings or dorms and easily accessible.

4 College Student

Parking: At Cornerstone, there is plenty of parking! However, it is harder to find a parking spot near your dorm building on Sunday nights when everyone is returning home. The cost is $75, but thats for the whole year. It is extremely easy to get your parking permit so you don't get fined. Although, Cornerstone is a small campus so a car isn't really necessary.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Could be more, but I've never known a college to have enough parking.
