I think CNU needs more parking spaces.
I've had to park at Harris teeter or Panera so many times after work because of lack of parking, and lack of convenient parking. I'm not saying I'm too lazy to walk from the far Warwick lot to JR, I'm just saying I think its unfair that people who live in Warwick have 2 huge lots right next to them, and JR has one tiny one.
Parking should be free for students

I agree especially with the "lack of convenient parking" part. Yes, there may be "enough" spaces, but they might be scattered across the opposite part of campus from where you live/ work. So what do you do? Some end up spending an extra 30+ minutes just trying to find that ONE spot that's open, somewhere on campus. Speaking as a student who visits home most weekends, it gets extremely tedious having to haul all my belongings across those distances; I end up having to make multiple trips, because otherwise I hurt my back and neck.

I just don't see where you could put any more parking near JR. It may be unfair it is located near warwick, but that is where the space was for the parking lots.
Also, I guarantee you that the people of Warwick use up a great deal of the Warwick lot.
I am a commuter student and I know I hate walking from the parking garage also, but you must understand that we are rather spoiled here at CNU. We might think our parking is a little inconvenient but he truth is that we have it way better than the parking at other schools, especially compared to school such as ODU and VCU located in cities. Some school such as VTech even park so far away that shuttles are necessary. I believe that although it is inconvenient at times, that there are more important issues at hand that we could focus on.

Or the fact that commuters... who don't even live on campus have to park 10m away in the parking garage every day. Especially in this crappy weather.
