3 College Sophomore

Parking: It's hard to find good parking.

2 College Junior

Parking: Its not a good situation

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is pretty alright but before she get a parking decal are you will get a ticket.

College Freshman

Parking: I can not say much about parking since I do not have a car at school. I do know that permits cost $75 but they go well into the next school year. They do give out tickets when you do not have your permit showing. They will tow cars away if they are in a reserved spot or in an area were it should not be parked at. I feel there is a need for a car on campus since I sometimes need to buy stuff for classes or for myself that the school store does provide. Parking in front of Mcallister dorm is always full. Parking else were on the campus is alright but it will be a walk to the dorm though.

4 College Junior

Parking: It is convenient however the parking lots become full fast

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The largest complaint around campus is parking. Students are concerned that they purchase a decal and still lack a parking spot. No student is actually guaranteed a location to park. Parking can be hectic on campus for numerous of reasons, and students are encouraged to purchase a decal. Seventy percent of students and professors drive to work, so the parking lots are backed up and over capacity.

There is a lack of parking locations for students who do not live on campus, and for the students who live on campus, sometimes they have to fight for a parking spot. Lack of parking spaces result in many students’ vehicles getting towed. Towing occurs all day every day. Students just park wherever they can fit to get to where they need to be on time. Arriving five minutes before class will result in distance parking and tiresome walking.
