Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Students who either commute to campus or have a car on campus certainly know the ways of parking on campus. Getting a spot is hit or miss. In order to park on campus, a pass is needed, which is free to students, excluding resident freshmen and sophomores. It is very important for students to display these passes clearly on their cars, as Campus Security is very strict with parking. Since the campus is relatively small, it is not easy for a student to get away with a parking violation, considering security is always looking to keep the parking situation in order. Many times there are not enough spots in the smaller parking lots, so students are stuck either going to the parking garage or finding a spot on a side street, which is extremely hard to get during the day.

The parking garage can be an issue for many students since it is located in the back of campus and students with class on the other side of school are stuck with a 10-minute walk across campus. The garage, however, is located next to the business school, so students from here will not have a problem with parking and getting to class on time.
