The ease of parking at Centre is usually taken for granted. There is always an available spot somewhere near where you are trying to go, although it may involve a few minutes to walk from your parking spot to your dorm. Freshmen are allowed to bring cars, and many people on campus have a car, which is odd, because you don't need it to go anywhere on Centre's campus. The best places to park are behind Nevin/Breck, behind Bingham, and the lot behind Yerkes/Cheek/Evans. These places are well-lit and a minute's walk from the dorms, which is handy, especially during move-in and move-out days. Of course, this also explains why these lots are almost always full.
DPS is serious about fining cars parked in faculty or staff lots. Weekends and evenings after 5 p.m., you can park anywhere, but at 8 a.m. the next morning, they are out in the lots ticketing. It's also easy to forget where you parked your car because you'll end up walking everywhere, and then when you need it to go off campus, it may take a couple of tries to remember where you left it. Having your decal on your back window is also a must, as it will elicit a quick ticket without its proper display. There is also a channel to contest tickets, and students have been able to repeal their fines.
