We realize that with the start of a new semester, new students may not be familiar with all of the parking lots on campus. Also, in bad weather, all students understandably want to park as close to the classroom buildings as possible.
However, neither is a defensible excuse for avoiding a parking ticket by parking on curbs, grass and other prohibited areas. Although prime parking lots are very full, Public Safety officers advise that parking lots J, K, and L, near the tennis courts, SAC and the Downs Center, have many vacant parking spaces.
Public Safety will continue to encourage students to use those lots during weekday peak times, as those lots routinely have plenty of vacant spaces.
