As of 2013, there were a total of 8,640 student parking spaces on campus…Enrollment for the fall 2013 semester was 38,325,” according to information gathered by The Daily Titan. After looking at the numbers one sees that there clearly is an issue.

The campus is aware that The Daily Titan has covered the topic of the student success fee and many of the students’ concern for the raise in tuition.

In it, four communications 462 students, including myself, have come together to bring awareness to the issues in order to spark action.

The film is part, a comedic film take, and a series of short interviews done around campus that aims to educate the members of the Cal State Fullerton community about their options, and gather opinions and suggestions from students about what should be done about parking.
