A meeting for September 28 was called

The reason for calling a special meeting is
that the executive council of the SGA, who
wrote the new constitution, want it to pass
through the senate in time to present it to the
board of trustees in October.
The issue of whether students will get to
vote on the constitution was not raised.
This was the second meeting of the Stu

quorum was not met.

Where can I park? That is a question on
the minds of many people at Gardner-Webb.
The problem lies in illegal parking. Dean
Scott reported to the Campus Life committee
that security has been busy writing tickets this
Tickets have been written for illegal
parking by residential students who drive to
the cafeteria, commuters driving to each of
their classes around campus instead of parking
in commuter lots, and faculty that park wher
ever they can put their cars if faculty parking
areas are full.
In the words of Dean Scott, the problem
is caused by a "domino effect."
Since students tend to drive to breakfast
or to early classes, faculty spaces become
unavailable by mid-morning. Faculty then
have to fmd spaces either in commuter parking
areas or residential areas.
When commuters begin to arrive, they
find that there spaces are taken by faculty,
staff, or residential students.
Spaces nearest to buildings are the most
sought after. The-curb near the security office
offers parking near the DCC, Lindsay Hall,
Noel Hall, and the Dover Chapel. It is also
illegal to park there.
Not only is it illegal, it is also potentially
hazardous. With cars being parked on either
side of this area, drivers' views are obstructed
as they pass through this area.
Both Scott and David Helton, chief of
university police, recommend that residential
students leave their cars paiiced in residence
hall parking areas from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.
They also recommend that commuters
park solely in commuter parking areas and in
the overflow located behind the Lutz Yelton
"I think that there is enough parking, but
not enough selective parking," said Dean Scott.
"People want to park right up at their door, or
