College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Parking: Freshman aren't allowed to have cars, which is kind of a bother. I think there should be more parking on campus rather than across the street from campus.

3 College Junior

Parking: I park in campus parking. There isn't a lot of street parking close to campus. The cost is okay for a permit I guess... I don't know what to compare it to. There are several lots. The best lots fill up quickly, but it's not too bad from other lots.

3 College Junior

Parking: Finding a parking spot is not an easy task. I usually have to leave my house 20 mins before my class starts just because i know ill either have park far away or because it will take me forever to find a spot.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking isnt very closet to classes or dorms and there arent enough spots for the amount of students there are

For students who live in residence halls, only upperclassmen are allowed to park on campus; dorm-dwelling freshmen are "banned" from on-campus parking, according to parking rules and regulations. 

All students who live off campus and drive to school are able to park in one of several parking lots, as long as they register their respective vehicles and pay the $60 required for a year's pass (a $30 semester pass is also available, but it doesn't grant parking access during the summer months).
