Parking remains a premium for students

August 24, 2006|by DAVE McMILLION

What seemed to bother Shepherd University senior Kaylynn Shoop the most during her first week of classes was parking.

It is difficult to find parking space at Shepherd and students have been parking in the grass at full parking lots because there is nowhere else to go, Shoop said.

Student Matt Cordell, who commutes from Martinsburg, W.Va., said he has to get to campus 30 minutes before classes start to find a parking space.

Alan Perdue, general counsel for Shepherd, said there are open parking spaces on some areas of the campus. The university actually has 50 more spaces than it did last year, and a gravel parking lot is being constructed adjacent to the Birch Hall and Maple Hall apartment buildings that should be open soon, Perdue said.

Perdue said he thinks the parking situation will improve once students discover the layout of the campus and find available parking.
