2 College Junior

Parking: I think commuter students have increased in the last few years, and parking is very limited, especially when education students have class all day.

Parking: A car would definitely be helpful on campus - walmart is pretty far away, however buses take people to walmart on the weekends. Parking spaces are hard to find

Parking could be the biggest complaint at Georgia College. Despite there being more than 3,600 spaces available to students, faculty, and staff, there is still definitely not enough of space. There are two-hour parking spaces around campus, but you are almost guaranteed a ticket if you do not move your car after those two hours. Usually, regulations are more strictly enforced from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The student lots around campus are generally full early in the morning, so if you want a spot, you have to get there early. Honestly, your best bet is to walk or ride a bike to campus if at all possible!
