Saying that three times fast is much easier than finding a place to park on campus.  If you arrive 15 minutes early, you’re late.  You must arrive well in advance in order to drive around campus until someone vacates a parking spot at the exact moment you are approaching it.  Since there is a reason starving college students are starving, we have to come up with a way to avoid that.

One option is to get to campus before 8 am.  This works really well if you have an early class or no life outside of college.  If you do have a life or I don’t know, a job(!), we’ll need a plan B.  I refer to this as the “arrive to class smelling like a bison” plan.  This is where you park a mile from class, strap two tons of books to your back and power walk to class.  It’s great.  :/
