I know the deck across from Lot 15-A is open after 5pm to everyone, as is the med school lot across from the Rec Center.

RE: Construction around UAB campus
theres a starbucks in the library? holy crap, ive been gone a long time.

when i was a student, one of the biggest things students complained about was the parking, which i never thought was that bad. having worked at a couple different universities since then, ive decided that the parking situation at uab was actually pretty darn good. when i worked at the univ of iowa, we parked about a mile away and had to catch a bus to campus...and that was for the doctors. i hear the students had it much worse...

It was a really stupid move on the schools part to not have the deck larger from the get go. Parking is the one thing that there was never enough of in bham and never will be.

It may very well have been an issue of money. It could also have been an issue of let's get this open and build another deck as well so we don't have this taking forever with the students having no place to park.

Quote:The library upgrade is needed but the starbucks confuses me. Im not sure how we had the money to put a starbuls in there but we dont have money for the school to pay fpr paper to print out the class syallbus in most of my courses.

Starbucks makes money. Your syllabus does not. Plus the professors most likely have a limit of how much money they are given to spend.

Starbucks may make money but it took away coputer room in the library and we already had a cooffee shop a block away. Im just echoing what teachers are saying. Whats funny is that my teachers in two totally different departments are saying the same things. Im not saying starbucks was a terrible idea but dont try to sell me on the fact that there is not enough money for paper, i dont believe it. Plus the classes are what makes the money, without the students there would be no need for the starbucks.

We don't need a syllabus handed out to us, anyway. We can just download it from blackboard vista and save it on our desktop.

If I were a teacher, I'd tell my students to do that because I wouldn't waste the paper/$$$ on it.

Speaking of parking...it took me 30 minutes to find a spot on Tuesday.

And no, I wasn't looking for the "supreme" parking spot. I couldn't even FIND ONE.

And apparently Starbucks took your ability to spell as well.

You have been gone a long time. That's been gone for 7-8 years.
