MURRAY, Ky. - It's hard to find a parking spot at Murray State University, like other colleges in the area it seems as if there are more students and staff with cars then spots.
We spent only a few minutes looking for a parking spot, and came up empty, imagine looking for one when you have class in a few minutes. "It gets on your nerves" said Scott Kirk. "It gets frustrating when you have to leave an hour before class so you can get a parking spot" said Chris Fike.
They are not the only Racers questioning if it's time for change. In a recent blog the university's president addresses the issue and asks for suggestions to fix the problem.
Some ideas are starting a shuttle system and possibly breaking ground on a new parking structure. Freshman Chris Fike likes those ideas "that would be very helpful, because having to walk the distances we walk you have to leave really early to get to class."
