Random College Expense Graphic Of The Day


Not sure why they left out the Aggies. Maybe they can't park on campus because it's considered holy or something.

I just paid $275 for my freshman son to park at Texas A&M. I wish I had known his parking garage was on the far west side of the campus and his dorm and classes are on the far east side.

He won't use his car one bit. Waste of money.

I can tell you for a fact the UT number is incorrect. It's much more than $120. My son paid $175 per semester to get a "C+" parking permit. He parked in the lot east of I-35 near the women's softball stadium and walked from there to his dorm, which was about a 20 minute walk.

The deck parking on campus was somewhere around $475/semester.

Where did you get this chart?

Another reason Tarleton State is THE place to be!!! $25 for parking/semester.

Yes, $275 for parking a Texas A&M. My kid rides the bus most of the time. Parking pass is mainly just for work on campus at the book store.

Cannabis smoking 'permanently lowers IQ'

1:19 has it right. For $120, you might get a space up near Round Rock.

UT parking passes don't get you too damn close to any classroom or dorm.

In my day (1973-1977), there was almost no parking on the A&M Campus to speak of, so cost was not very relevant!

Wait till your kid parks in the wrong lot or the wrong space at any of those learning centers and see how much the parking tickets are. THAT will get your attention!

Correct on the OU parking..but it does allow pretty good close-up parking to the dorms and such for freshmen, even.

The use of the word "holy" by a backsliddin' Baptist boy makes it just another 4 letter word.

The aggies don't park on campus because they don't want their cars shot up.

TSU, $25 parking for a $25 education.

When you go to UT, you ride the shuttle buses, which let you out on the edge of campus, and then you walk. You're young; a 10 or 15 minute walk to class is nothing. You get used to it very quickly.

And in Decatur, if people have to walk a block to a business on the square, people complain that there is no parking.

My son paid $225 to park close to his dorm at Texas A&M. It is uncovered parking but covered parking cost more. Parking, I believe, is first come first serve as far as getting parking on campus at A&M with returning students and students living on campus getting priority.

Read your bill you get too. They charge you for scholarships for other kids. That's crap!

So 3:33, let's see your education from Wherever University land you careers like mine and my husband's........we're doing rather well, thank you very much! In fact, we have a son there now, and because of those TSU degrees we earned, he'll be graduating 100% debt free. Once again, thank you very much.

My son @ A&M has no car, no parking fee...

East central university parking = $0

I'm smart enough not go to a college that charges for parking.

Rice jacks up the price because of all the rich River Oaks spoiled kids can afford it.

A&M isn't on their chart because they left Texas to join the SEC
