INTERVIEW WITH THE SCHOOL DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY SERVICES
NAME: Correa Yvonne

1. There is a talk going around that students are struggling with parking. What do
you think about that?
The number of parking spaces available is more than adequate in relation to the number
of registered students, students who may be on campus on any given date/time. This also
applies to and takes into consideration faculty and staff who also park on campus. Often,
the upper lot P2 has plenty of available parking, yet we prefer to circle around the main lot
instead of parking in the upper lot.
2. What solution based on your experience would best fit the parking problem for
students? What suggestions would you give to help the school with this problem?
Ideally, having more studios, work areas, etc., for students in the upper campus, would
help end the notion that the upper lot is ‘sooo far away from everything’.
3. When is the busiest time for students and faculty to park? and why do you think
that is the busiest time?
Definitely the first few weeks of school and usually Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is a
combination of two things: before add-drop dates, parking is open to everyone. Once these
dates pass, we do require a permit to park on campus so the situation remedies itself since
many of our students choose not to purchase a permit and prefer to park off campus
(mostly on Glenoaks or near North Hall. The first 2 weeks of school, we offer free
parking at the church across from campus and we shuttle the students over from/to the
main campus. This is advertised often and ahead of time and is very convenient, yet we
find that not so many students as we would like, take advantage of this and prefer to look
for parking on campus. Once the Add-Drop period is over and a parking permit is required, the
situation settles back to normal.
4. What would be the busiest parking spot on campus and why do you think that?
The Main Lot P3 – Because everyone thinks this is the closest lot – this is not true but
it is a matter of perception.
5. Don’t you think building a parking structure in school would be a good idea?
Have the school thought of doing that?
As an anecdote and wishful thinking, I say that if I ever win the lottery, I will pay for
an underground parking lot and a soccer field (on top) of the underground lot. Of course, this is
my dream, but not very likely at this time. Realistically speaking, we are always looking

for ways to improve parking for everyone.
On a separate note, we do reserve spaces for guests. The reason is that these guests and
programs benefit the school in many ways. I know that this may seem to be an
inconvenience, but we are confident that it is for our benefit.

INTERVIEW #2
Student Name: Canaan Messina
Major: Business Management
Year: Sophomore

1.Do you think Woodbury University has enough parking spaces for students?
-No I don’t think so.
2.have you ever experienced parking difficulties here on Woodbury’s campus?
-Yes. I have to arrive at school 10 to 15 minutes early just so I can find parking if I
was lucky I would.
3.Do you think not having enough parking spaces in Woodbury University
affects a student’s performance in a class? Explain why?
-Yes. It’s very stressful because a lot of times I was late to class because I did not have
time to come very early to school and I end up being late to class because of this
problem. And I was warned a couple of times about it from my professors which
basically affects my performance in class.
4.What solution do you think fairly fits this problem? In other words, if you
had the opportunity to fix this problem how would you approach it?
-The school might have space to build more parking but since I’m not sure. I think a
a fair solution would be to buy a parking spot (Doesn’t have to be on campus, can be a
a couple of blocks away) with a shuttle that can pick up students and take them to
campus every 15 minutes. And I think the school can afford that since it’s a private
school.
