The SGA resolution sought to remove barricades that restricted 30 parking spaces in the west section of the south lot near the Mailman-Hollywood building to faculty of the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences. On Oct. 3, Hanbury requested the removal of the barricades, in order for the 30 spaces to once again become equally accessible to students, faculty and staff.
“Are you kidding me? Again with this nonsense!” This was my very thought this morning as I attempted to enter the parking garage at the east entrance nearest DeSantis. Merely getting into the garage is the least of my concerns on any given day.

For the nearly 1,500 students who live on campus, worrying about gas, unexpected flat tires, and other unforeseen parking woes is not a problem.
