3 College Junior

Parking: it is okay. as long as one knows his or her way , and where to park, and not park everything will be fine.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The parking here is kinda expensive but you dont really need a car.

4 College Freshman

Parking: I feel that the parking available is really great even on days when we have visitors!

2 College Junior

Parking: I am not a wealthy person at all. When you have to pay $159 dollars for one semester to be able to park by your apartment is upsetting. Also, for all the people that live at the apartments, it doesn't seem like enough space.

Even at campus, I take the bus because the parking lots are always jammed packed with cars and even when people are driving around to find spots, it tends to be over crowded.

2 College Junior

Parking: My building is extremely busy, apparently, so finding a parking spot after 8 am is almost impossible. There's other parking about a mile away, but you have to get to school about 20 minutes early just to make the hike. Parking for the year is about $100, and any kind of ticket is $35 per violation.
