Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
Parking at Carroll University is a big problem. The amount of parking spots does not match up with the number of students. There is no guarantee of finding a spot, which makes parking extremely difficult for commuters. Often, they are left to park on the streets, most of which have a two-hour limit. When classes exceed two hours, students get tickets.
Most students park in the overflow section, but this lot is the worst of the worst. There is a plethora of potholes, capable of swallowing cars. Well, maybe not to that extreme, but it is in poor condition. To buy a parking pass means crying a little, as the amount in a student's bank account plummets. If a student wants to park by his or her dorm, it is $176. For a college student, that is a lot of money. Public Safety is really picky on this issue and hands out tickets left and right. If a student doesn't have a permit, he or she should expect a fine. If these fines are not paid, a student cannot register for classes, get his or her transcripts, or even get a diploma. Parking is a constant struggle between students and the administration.
