Think of the worst place you have ever been or could ever imagine. Got it? Well, that’s where you’ll be when you’re trying to park on campus at one of the commuter or dorm lots. The school has only enough spaces for a fraction of faculty, staff, and students. If you’re one of the last ones into the dorm lots, you’re not going to get a spot. When the dorms were built, cars were more of a luxury than they are now. Get a good spot and don’t move unless you absolutely have to go somewhere.
Parking isn’t something that just affects the students, either. The professors are sometimes late to class because students park in their spaces, and they have nowhere to park. Ole Miss keeps building more and more lots, but they’re farther and farther away from the heart of campus. When it rains, it stinks to have to walk all the way from your car to the other side of campus for a 50-minute class and then walk all the way back to your car. But, for now, it’s something that students will have to deal with. Even if they’re not earth-shatteringly beautiful, garages would be worth it for the convenience of the faculty, staff and students. The best thing you can do is not hit the snooze button on your alarm clock three times. Get out of bed when you’re supposed to, get to school 30 minutes earlier, and you’ll be able to sit in line for a parking spot. Sounds like tons of fun, huh?
