Transcript Throwing up her hands in despair, this student displays the frustration common to all while studying — cramming — for finals. Photo by Ed Davidson. In the absence of females on the single-sex floors, creative students pin up reminders such as this "Girl on Board." Photo by Ed Davidson Parking Problems You, as an average U of H student, are a commuter. You drive to school every day and, in an attempt to save money, you shell out $10 for a parking sticker, under the stipulation that you park in the out-lying lots. Sounds easy enough. However, you fail to realize the true definition of the word "out-lying." ^^^^m The term actually ^^^^m means, "you can't see the university from here." Your first day at school is a disaster. Even the lot behind the stadi- ^^^^m um is packed. You ^^^^ spend 15 minutes searching for a space and five minutes walking to the shuttle bus stop where you wait 20 minutes for your ride to campus. When you finally arrive in class, the professor is packing up his lecture notes as the students file out. "Never again," you mumble. That afternoon you contact your friend "Lefty," who knows a guy who works for a girl that used to hang out with someone in Parking and Transportation. Somehow, Lefty is able to get you a $70 sticker, good for the closer student lots, at the low, low price of just $5. You don't ask questions. After all, it's still a savings of $55. And, best of all, you'll be on time to class. Think again. The regular lots are no better. You conclude that the University has sold more parking stickers than there are spaces for. The only way to get a space When you finally arrive in class, the professor is packing up his lecture notes as students file out. is to follow someone out to their car when they leave. You spot a girl leaving the business building. She walks down a row of cars. Slowly, you drive along behind her, glancing around for other vehicles that might try to move in on your claim. On she goes. Finally, she arrives at a white Subaru hatch-back. You wait patiently for the moment when the space will be yours. She opens the door. She reaches into the back pop seat and picks up a notebook. $45. "Get on with it," you think. You're Taking her notebook from right? the car, she closes the door, and locks it. "What?" you think. Once again, she starts walking, back to the business building. "Wait!!!" you scream, "you're supposed to go home now! Come back!" It just isn't fair. As a last resort, you park at a meter. You force-feed all of your change into the parking ^^^_ meter and just make it to class on time. Upon your return, you find a blue and white paper tucked under your windshield i_B_ wiper. YES. It is a parking ticket. No, the meter has not run out of time. There are three violations listed: #1. Failing to properly display decal (there were bubbles between the sticker and the glass); #2. Parking in two or more spaces (but officer, my wheel was just barely over the stripe), and #3. Putting false information on your decal registration card (the sticker Lefty got you was for a 1972 Chevy van). At $15 a the charges total just still $10 ahead, Taking a break between classes, these students find time to relax in the park-like setting of the university. 288 University of Houston Residence Halls 289
