Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The largest complaint around campus is parking. Students are concerned that they purchase a decal and still lack a parking spot. No student is actually guaranteed a location to park. Parking can be hectic on campus for numerous of reasons, and students are encouraged to purchase a decal. Seventy percent of students and professors drive to work, so the parking lots are backed up and over capacity.

There is a lack of parking locations for students who do not live on campus, and for the students who live on campus, sometimes they have to fight for a parking spot. Lack of parking spaces result in many students’ vehicles getting towed. Towing occurs all day every day. Students just park wherever they can fit to get to where they need to be on time. Arriving five minutes before class will result in distance parking and tiresome walking.
