Going to college is often thought of as your time to be free. Free from; parents, most rules, and your past. Having a car at school allows you to be able to go wherever you want, whenever you want.

Other than the fact that the cost of parking is ridiculous here at Hartford, there are never any spots. Either the school has oversold parking passes or there aren’t enough spots. Many of us often drive around for at least 20 minutes to even find a spot, let alone a spot close to your dorm.
