Parking on campus is only a hassle junior year, when it’s a battle to find a spot by the apartments. Since underclassmen can’t bring cars to campus, it helps alleviate problems that could occur if everyone was to bring a car. While it’s near impossible to find a spot on Main Campus, the main lot almost always has a few spots during the day. And at night, when the main lot clears out, anyone with a car should have no problem parking there.
Since you can’t have a car on campus until your junior year, you get comfortable walking around campus from place to place. While parking may sometimes be a pain, particularly for the juniors living in the apartments, it is still a great help to have a car on campus. Most events, venues, and places to go tend to be out of walking distance from campus, and public transportation can become expensive. So, even with the problems associated with parking, it never hurts to have a car around.
