QuoteDuring the past year, we have received numerous complaints about the crowded condition of Lot F.To increase studentsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ chances of finding available spaces, the lot will be designated as a brownpermit lot, with the permit price increasing to $100, the cost equivalent of a green permit. Thebrown permit will also be honored in all red permit lots and may be modified by Parking Services sothat it may be used in the residential areas.

QuoteSIUE is a public university, which is supported by Illinois tax payers and federal funding. Thus its ultimate goal should be to deliver an affordable education for the public and provide the means for them to achieve it. Understandably, the university may need some extra funds sometimes to operate smoothly and to expand and develop as a true premier metropolitan university. Yet it could raise money by some different and noble ways. If this situation continues, the name of the university could be spelled as $IUE instead of SIUE in a very near future. It costs money in the city, eh?
