Worried about gaining the famous "Freshman 15" from all the greasy cafeteria food and late night snacks? Never fear! The trek to your car in Siberia parking lot will keep you slim. Parking there is a little inconvenient in the middle of the night when the temperature is below freezing, but Hollins women are much better off than students at larger campuses. Really, the walk from Siberia lot to the dorms is only five to eight minutes long, depending on where you live, and everyone gets used to it after a while.
One thing students can't seem to get used to are the parking regulations. At the beginning of the year, you will hand $50 to the woman behind the desk at the campus security office, and she will hand you a parking permit, complete with all the rules about where and where not to park. Read this pamphlet! The campus police don't see much action at Hollins, so they release their crime-fighting urges by throwing parking tickets around like confetti. Parking tickets usually cost $25 or $50, depending on what you do wrong, but they add up quickly.
