Watching cars come to a halt as eager students try to find that perfect spot in the morning before a long day filled with classes can be stressful. That perfect spot is hard to find, especially here at Dominican University. There's really only one parking lot available to students and all the rest around the residential neighborhoods are off limits. The fury this brings students is uncanny. Many students commute to school, and the amount of spots that the school doesn’t provide us makes it difficult for students. Mornings are stressful enough without students having to worry about whether or not they will find a spot. Students express there opinions daily regarding parking and if you happen to be running late, finding a spot will only make your mornings worse. Granted, creating more parking could be a difficult task to fill, but opening up spots around the residential neighborhoods would benefit students. One parking lot isn’t enough for such a large majority of students, including commuting faculty and staff and students.Not to mention residents not giving students a break if they do happen to catch them parking in a residential area. with that not being an option for us, students are forced to head back to that isn’t even an option for us. Leaving students with nothing more but to suck it up and head back to the one campus parking lot provided.
