3. Silver lining to parking headache: Your parking fees at work


If you drive to campus, you've undoubtedly suffered "parking headache," an affliction that spikes particularly when students return to campus and the parking lots fill up beyond capacity. While there is nothing very positive about having a headache, there is an "up side" to the parking fees—and tickets—that we all pay.

4. An active summer

The hub of activity at Metro State didn't stop when classes ended in the spring, particularly with a new president at the helm. Among the key announcements was the formation of a new presidential cabinet and the search for the new provost.

On the fundraising side, Development staff exceeded their goals by $600,000; the college has been awarded a second five-year grant totaling nearly $2.1 million for the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) and is a finalist for a Toyota grant for the Family Literacy Program.

Other changes include: The college will no longer operate the Metro Academy at the Lookout Mountain Youth Detention Facility, the Center for Visual Art has become part of the Art Department, and the Leisure Studies program has moved to the Department of Health Professions.
