cut down on the amount of parking spaces.
Wright says the color coding seenu to work, but
thal the nen school project should be to reorganize the
street parking behind the Communications Building.
Instead of people parking parallel, it would be a big help
to have them redo the street for diagonal parking.
Dr. James Dervin, a member of the English facul
ty, is a member of the TrafTic Appeals Committee. He
says the division of the different parking zones was mis
calculated Dervin says the red zone behind the Hall-
Patterson Building is hardly ever full. Often there are
people parking in this area who either have the wrong
color parking decal or those who don't have a parking
decal at all.
William Cain, chairman of the Traffic Appeals
Committee, says the decals do not entitle anyone to a
parking space, but instead enable you to park on cam
pus. Cain says the parking situation on the campus is a
lot better than you will find on other college campuses.
There are spaces available, but they are nowhere people
want to park.
Cain says; "If you have been ticketed unjustly,
there are parking violation appeals forms available in
the Counseling Center. These forms must be completed
within 10 days of receiving a citation and the fine must
be paid before appealing your case."
In closing, Cain suggested that if we abide by
these rules, then we won't have a parking situation.
How does James Lewis, who's in charge of park
ing, feel about these situations?
Lewis feels there isn't a parking problem; instead,
there are enough spaces to park if people are willing to
walk. He says there are unused spaces behind the tennis
courts and beside the F.A. Atkins Nursing Building.
According to Lewis, until people park in the cor
rect color codes, cars will continue to be towed or
So if you're in need of parking spaces on campus and
have driven around for 20 minutes looking for a space, try
parking your car in the unpopular spots — it will take
longer to get to wherever you want to go, but there won't
be a wheel-lock on your car when you return.

Q. Last year, security checked the identification
of each person driving a car coming onto campus. Why
isn't this practice being continued?
A. First, because traffic is not as heavy this year
and second, if it's cold and raining at rught, my officer
gets cold and sick, then he is out for a week or two.
Q. One night earlier this semester, some people
were riding around campus screaming, "Wake-up!"
They rode by security office about three times, where
was secruity? Why didn’t they stop these people?
A. They probably didn't hear him. If they are in
the office, they can't hear, and if they are on patrol in
their cars with the windows rolled up, they can't hear.
For example, if someone is breaking into your car and
security stc^ and ask that person is that your car, then
naturally, they will say yes. Overall, if someone is rid
ing around screaming, and they see security, then they
Q. Why does it take security so long to respond to
A. It depends on the situation. Others could be
responding to other calls so, when someone else calls,
we can’t leave the person we are helping to respond to
another call. With our new radios, we can respond with
in five minutes. Overall, it depends on the situation, and
it should be noted that security has 3-4 officers working
during the day.
Q. What is Security's phone number?
A. 750-2900. After 5 p.m., we are on call forward
ing. Callers must give us time to answer if they call after 5
p.m. The phone will ring four times and then it switches to
us. Approximately seven rings should occur before callers
should hang up and give up on security.
Q. Students like to get together after hours to
have fun. On several nights, around 11 p.m., they have
been behind Atkins Hall playing freeze tag, and securi
ty has made them stop. Is there a problem with them
playing there at that time of night?
A. The studenu must respect the other students
who may be trying to sleep or study, and it all depends
what time of night it is. If studenU want to play games
before hours, then they should go to the football field,
but after hours, no, they should not play this game at
Overall, the Security office feels that they can’t
satisfy everone's wants all of the time, but if WSSU stu
dents, faculty and staff work together by adhering to the
parking rules and regulations, and to other campus reg
ulations, WSSlTs campus community will continue to
become a belter place for everyoije.
