The walk from the free parking lot to class is not that far

I have read with interest the letters and articles stating that there should be free student parking close to classrooms. As an engineering faculty member I decided to conduct an experiment to find out how big an issue this really is at EWU. On Friday, I parked in the far back end of lot P12 above the stadium (free parking that I use) and walked to Kingston Hall on the opposite side of campus. I did not rush, stayed on all of the sidewalks and did not even take the shortest route. Lest you think I am a speed demon, I am an out-of-shape 54-year-old with a bum hip. It took me 14 minutes, which is a very reasonable time to get from your car to class.

    Thank you! It’s not that hard to walk across campus!
