Ask Melanie


Dear Melanie,

Parking at this school is a nightmare. I have a class at 9:15 a.m., I set my alarm for 8 a.m. and I leave my house at 9 a.m. I live 15 minutes away and I am always in a rush. My class is in Kaplan, so I want to park next to it, but there are NEVER spaces at this time. What the heck should I do? Are there any secret parking spots on campus?!

Dear Spot-Seeker,

If you commute, you should get here at least 15 to 20 minutes earlier to find a parking spot, especially outside of Kaplan. Try setting your alarm a little earlier, so that you have more time to get ready and you can leave your house sooner! You can even come to campus an hour before class around 8 a.m. and you will find PLENTY of parking spaces around then! Then you will have time to relax, grab coffee and breakfast before class and still be on time!
