Record enrollment at Texas Tech this semester is presenting a challenge to commuters.
One Sophomore had an experience that was repeated many times as she spent several minutes circling the parking lots in search of a free space. "I got here about 11:45am and it was extremely packed. I ended up parking way over there by the coliseum," said Amanda Butchee. "It's way different than summer."
A Texas Tech spokesperson said that overall parking went smoothly on the first day and they do not anticipate any problems to come.
Traffic and parking officials will also be going easy on the ticketing this week. However, illegally parked vehicles will be given a warning
