3 College Junior

Parking: Permit costs are a decent price, but not outrageously overpriced. Tickets and fines occur during the week when parking in places that require a permit without one; the price is around $20. Campus is consolidated and relatively easy to traverse by foot even when you need to get from point A to point B quickly; some students prefer not to walk, so they choose to bring their car. Availability of parking spaces is relatively competitive; there is a decent amount of parking when considering the size of the school. However, a lot of incoming students want to bring there cars making it a competitive event to find the parking space they want.

Parking: I don't have a car up there this year, but I do know that it is a little bit expensive and there is not enough parking spots.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Finding a parking spot on campus is pretty easy and they are all relatively close. Parking rules are not too strict, nor too lenient and the fines for breaking the rules are fair. The need for a car is pretty low. Using one to get around to classes is pointless, but there is not a lot to do on campus. Besides leaving to go home, the only real reason to have a car is to go into town or a nearby town.

College Sophomore

Parking: I don't have a car at campus, so I don't know about the parking situation.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: I pay $200 a year for a parking permit and can never park close to my building. They added another residence building, but did not add any parking. I have already gotten over $100 in parking tickets this year, due to lack of parking close to my building and lack of clarity in where I am allowed to park. I am not allowed to park on the street next to my building, because I need to buy a separate permit in order to do so. Although there is space to park on the other side of campus, I did not buy a parking permit so that I had to walk 20 minutes to my vehicle. How is $200 even reasonable for a permit in the first place? I am paying my own way, and on top of tuition, housing, and the ridiculous meal plan, outrageous parking prices are unnecessary.
