Good luck finding anyone who has anything nice to say about the parking situation on campus. UNCG has itself a real problem, and the only solution is to give out a sky-high number of tickets. They should be working to fix their mistakes—one of which is selling more passes than there are parking spots on campus—instead of striving to penalize students for trying to park so they can get to class. But parking isn't just hard on commuter students; it's also a huge pain for resident students who may find it impossible to find a spot after returning from a routine trip to Target or a night out with friends.
Unfortunately, students have no choice but to put up with the atrocious parking because it doesn't look like it is getting better anytime soon. If you're a resident student and you have to leave campus to run errands, try to be back before 6 or 7 p.m. The majority of commuting students will have left by then, so it should be easier to find a spot. If you're a commuting student, a great trick is to arrange your schedule so that you only have class two or three days a week. Yes, the days you have to be on campus will be longer, but it means you won't have to battle for parking as often. And as always, give yourself plenty of time in the morning to get to campus and find a spot before your class begins—you're going to need it.
