Securing a parking spot is something that student drivers deal with each year — hoping to get assigned a good spot, preferably not in the grass and mud. Maybe a spot that isn’t crammed. Some of these minor inconveniences should change starting in the fall.

 “If all the students that were online came back we would not have enough parking,” said Dean of Students Steve Henderson.  

The plan for the next school year is to use the new parking spaces at the athletic center for overflow and for sophomores who begin driving during the school year, he said.

Henderson said the long range plan is to expand the faculty and staff parking area and open up more spaces for students in the main lot.
