Girl in a Bookstore: What do you think of parking pass prices?

“I got a $50 parking ticket seven days after the parking pass I had expired, so I had to pay for my ticket and $100 for a new parking pass. The price for a piece of plastic is ridiculous, especially on top of tuition costs.”

“I don’t understand having to pay $100 for a piece of plastic. $50 is understandable, but 90 percent of the school population lives off campus. I understand that there needs to be a fee but it doesn’t need to be so expensive. I also don’t know where all of the money we pay for parking passes goes.”

“Where’s all the money for the parking passes going to? I don’t understand why the price of the parking passes went up from $50 my sophomore year, to $75. If they’re going to charge more for parking passes, they should make more parking lots.”

“It should be a price that’s included in our student fees. If we’re paying for daycare, even if we don’t have kids, the price should be somewhat or all included in our fees. It’s too much to pay out of pocket when we’re also paying for tuition, books and fees.”

    They spent all of the parking pass fees on those disgusting Luna Bars at the Rec center. 31 boxes of those damn things!
