Wow I'm sorry man. I've been there before. My university is usually packed by the time I get there for my classes. I've had to park in the weirdest spots just to make it to class

My college wouldn't pass you without a C or better. But if Average or Below Average is all you strive to achieve, be sure to remember to ask, "You want fries whith that?"

That's some good hustle OP. Keep it up. If that happens again, take advantage of cancelled lecture and get some extra homework/studying in. . . Devils advocate: Schedule extra time for parking OP! (If you can)

I agree #6, on days I drove to class I would leave earlier too. "I couldn't find a park" won't really cut it once OP starts in the workforce. University teaches you skills beyond that of the classroom, like punctuality and time management.

Parking is generally better in the workforce. I can always park at my job but never at university, and anyone I know with a job can always park with no problem.

In my university everyone comes either by bike or by public transport, so parking is never a problem. Then again, I live in the Netherlands, and almost no student can afford a car...

In my university in the US, it's not that everyone can afford cars. It's that we don't have a choice. There isn't a reliable public transportation option and it would be over an hour bike ride for me to get to class (which isn't super realistic because we live on a mountain so winter would be miserable). Consequently, almost everyone drives and there's never any parking. I show up about 45 minutes early to be sure I have time to find parking.

I'm never sure if I'm better off travelling in by car or train to my uni because the trains can be so rubbish, I have to leave plenty of time to allow for delays anyway. I suppose the plus side is that since I am so tired in the mornings it's much less dangerous than driving.
