Parking closer seems like the rational thing to do, but it is a risk, which can result in hundreds of dollars worth of traffic tickets, or having your car toed away. Having a car last semester, it was very inconvenient for me to park when it came to driving to class. I was disappointed by the amount of tickets I received, making my parents question whether I really needed a car. I might get a new car next semester but in all honesty I don’t really know if it’s worth it or not, especially if you're living on campus. Riding the bus only involves a shorter walk to class, and I can usually find rides to other places from someone else.
As a Millikan student I take the city bus at 6:46 everyday and it's hard and stressful, the bus can take long to get to school due to traffic. Also when my parents drive me there's always traffic , I always see students getting dropped off in the middle of the street just to try to make it on time. That can be really dangerous and It can cause a accident. Students should not have to be rushed to try to make it in time just cause they don't want
After this, finding parking seems like a nightmare for students every single day. This is because when “The Board has authorized the College to enter into an agreement to build and manage a new dormitory.”(EDCC), the college took out most of the parking spaces for the new building which can help the college “increase the international enrollment number from 800 to 1,000 students” (EDCC). It makes EDCC parking lots have non-enough parking for students, so every morning, and the college carpool like a battlefield for students who fight for the parking. Even through, EDCC has a lot off campus parking for students, no too much students will park there even they cannot find the parking in campus. This is because the off campus is far from the college, and students need to take routes 112, 115, 116, 190 or 118 back to the college after parking (EDCC Parking).
After walking around in the rain all day, trying to make it to classes on time, we end up sick and have to miss school. I know of many students with similar complaints. If it is raining, snowing, sleeting, or storming why is it so hard for the little buggies, that they have going around campus all the time, shuttle people around or put up a shelter. Why can’t this campus be more like the bus stops that have to protect us from getting completely soaked while we wait? I attended the University of Alaska in Fairbanks.
This is the very inconvenience for the students who live on the Ellicott. The students who live on Ellicott either have to walk for 15 minutes to get to student union or they will have to wait for the bus. Most students get off the bus at the Student Union and then they will have to walk to their academic building through the tunnels. The student would have to leave the dorm about thirty minutes before class just to get to class on time. This takes away the whole purpose of doing or the convenience of doing.
ACC campuses are not exceptions in this mess. Apart from the fact that there are not enough parking spaces, most of the students complain there is a lack of security at the parking garages as they find some of their belongings missing. I just heard one student shout out they were missing a side mirror that was not long before, Frank one of my friends at another campus complained of his spare wheel missing. One Friday afternoon I went to take one of my tests at a campus and almost missed the cut off time since I could not find parking. I had to wait for a longer time for cars to leave the parking lot so I could have somewhere to park my car.
If they finish their shift too late and arrives to class late, then the possibility of the being disorientated will be quite high and lethal to the student, due to the fact that they missed the introduction. Continuing to be late forces them to make decisions between school and changing jobs, and in many cases they just end up quitting school. Being unable to balance a student’s work and school may cause that student to drop out of college. Another reason students drop out of college is because of unexpected family problems. Throughout the years many people get sick and wounded, some are more severe than others.
Sheridan College currently faces a problem which many campuses face nationwide: inadequate parking. This is due to a high student population (both residents and commuters) and too few spaces. Unfortunately, the effects of inadequate parking are a source of stress for students, staff, and visitors. This stress leads to more than just a headache; the unnecessary added stress can cause students to ultimately fail. Students who struggle to find parking also struggle in the classroom.
School is supposed to be a place of learning but now students have to worry if they are safe when they go to school. All these distractions have some students scared to go to school. Every one of these distractions creates an environment that is not conducive to learning. Almost every student has had a study hall. Study halls are a huge waste of time because students end up just sitting around getting themselves into trouble.
When you are at the bus stop to go to Cajun Field and you look at the covering you will notice that it is falling apart. There are holes and exposed wood and in some placing it is rotting. There has been many times the line for the bus exceeds the bus stop so people are left in the open area, which is an inconvenience when it is windy or rains. With its current configuration, the bus stop can accommodate approximately 90 people and with our modifications it would be able to fit about 250 people. As of the Fall of 2015 there are 16,729 degree seeking students at ULL (Lord).
