3 College Sophomore

Parking: I have not had a car so I can't really comment. The town is close enough to walk and there are some students with cars so I have found that I don't really need one.

College Freshman

Parking: I am a freshman so I don't have a car and am unaware of the parking situation. I haven't heard anyone complain

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Cars are not really needed on campus because everything is within walking distance.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is good if you want a car but a lot of people don't have a car since most people live on campus.

4 College Junior

Parking: Parking is pretty good if you are a commuter and not too bad if you are a resident.

Parking spots are numerous and relatively close to dorm rooms. When students moan about parking in the back row of "Siberia," they rarely have even a 10-minute walk back to their dorms-inconvenient, but not impossible. The gravel lots, nicknamed "Siberia" and "Purgatory," have ample spots for student vehicles.

Favorite gripes are the $125 parking permit fee and poor parking-lot maintenance. During the icy months, Grovers might find themselves wishing for thick boots and a sturdy shovel. Best times to catch a good parking spot are early Friday evenings or Sunday mornings, when much of the campus is at church.

Getting a Parking Permit
Parking permits must be obtained from the campus safety office. They designate you as a commuter student, resident student, or visitor, and where you may park depends on this status. Visitors may park wherever they want for a maximum of three days. Commuters have a number of special slots allocated to the them in the parking lot adjoining the Physical Learning center. Resident students get whatever is left.
