Faculty & Staff

[email protected]

This morning I arrived on campus two hours early to get a parking space in the Diddle lot, which is reserved for commuters. As I sat in my car, I noticed that “the ticket lady ” was checking for parking passes on nearby cars. She checked a few cars then stopped at a Mustang to write a ticket. After she placed the ticket on the window, she continued walking through the lot. Fifteen minutes later, I decided to go on to class. As I got out of my car, I couldn’t help but notice that “the ticket lady” had not written a ticket to a car with a faculty /staff red permit that was parked in the commuter lot. If the faculty and staff do not obey parking rules, how can you expect students to? Led by example. I am outraged. The rules for parking should apply to everyone, not just students. Furthermore, I find it pathetic that commuters parking are in the most inconvenient places possible. Do not overlook our parking places, just because we do not live at Western. We do not deserve to be treated this way. When it comes down to it, the students pay to attend Western, not the faculty and staff.
