Parking opens up room for commuters

VSU Parking and Transportation changed their overnight parking policy during the break.

Students who park in the Oak Street lots F, G and H can no longer park in F. This change is to benefit the large numbers of commuters that need the parking during the day.

This also means resident students will need to utilize the Sustella parking deck more.

“[A]fter getting consensus from the SGA senators and meeting with Parking and Transportation, we met with administration and Dean Mast to figure out the best way to begin to implement these changes,” SGA President Ryan Baerwalde said. “The top two floors of Sustella are basically empty all the time. The school is still paying off both parking decks. We need to be using them.”

With changes come pros and cons, so it was no surprise that there were mixed emotions.

“I am happy about the change, by them opening up the F lot. It gives me more opportunities to park somewhere,” Percy Broussard, junior mass media major and commuter, said.

Some residents do not agree with the change in parking.

“By them taking F away it is twice as hard to find parking in Sustella, especially at night,” Rodney Singleton, jazz music performance major, said. “With more spots being taken, it means less chances of catching the shuttle.”
It will take some time for the campus to notice any significant consequences from the changes in parking.
