The parking situation on campus is getting ridiculous. Two convenient lots have been closed to build the parking garages, which current students probably will not even be able to enjoy. I've gotten to the point where I don't even attempt to park remotely close to campus. I've made peace with the fact that I'm going to have to walk quite a distance to get to class. It would be wonderful if the buses didn't take so long to get to the lots and weren't always crowded, but this isn't the case. That way, we wouldn't have to be concerned with where we park, because the bus could drive us as close to our class as we wanted to be. I was on a bus on Thursday that was so full, the driver had to turn people away. The root of the problem is simply, there are too many students and not enough parking spaces. Lots and spaces have been changed to "teacher only" parking and are rarely full (which makes no sense to me). Hopefully MTSU can get it together and these parking garages will help the problem, but I'm not sure if that will even help. I think MTSU should really assess the amount of "teacher parking" that's actually being used and make those unused lots available to students.
