As nearly any long time WMU student will tell you, finding a great parking spot on campus can be akin to often be akin to finding a pond in the middle of the Sahara desert.
With over 24,000 enrolled students, the university’s parking services faces a challenge of ensuring that registered drivers are able to find proper parking places, while keeping out unauthorized squatters. However, with full-year student parking passes costing $300, combined with the recent price bump of parking violations from $15 to $25, has made the office a source of controversy among certain students.
Later this week, the Western Herald will publish a feature story about the issue, featuring interviews students and staff. However, we also want to know you think. How do you feel about the university’s parking services? Do you think they are doing a good job policing campus parking space, or are there areas they could improve upon?
