Transcript From A yy ith commuters making up a large percentage of the students, approximately 30,000 of them, they have their own set of problems, seperate from those students who live on campus. The most visible problem was parking, with fewer spaces than students. Another problem was traffic. With plenty of time to kill on the busy roads of Houston at rush- hours, students found themselves with too much time on their mind and not enough to do to pass the time while the cars sit next to their cars on the freeways. Aida Rivas, a junior Spanish major, who lives off campus, cited the on-going road construction throughout the city as a source of frustration. As far as getting involved in campus activities, she said it is more difficult for a student who does not live on campus. "I'm not around campus all of the time to hear by word of mouth, or to check out the posters on the boards in different buildings." However, according to most students not living on campus does not affect making friends, since they meet people in classes or in groups they are in. According to Aida, "making friends all depends on the person." Jimmy Babb, a senior finance major, lived on campus for three years before moving into his own apart ment. He said, he does not have a problem with getting involved, since he had become involved in most things before he moved off campus. But he said he could see how a freshman or sophomore who did not live on campus would have problems. Babb said the biggest problem he sees is that it's difficult to get together to do a group project since people live in so many different directions outside of the city. "It gets to be a hassle sometimes to get everybody together," he said. "It causes a lot of problems." -Marjorie Goodman he Shuttle Bus took students to different campus locations.
