Parking spaces will soon become a precious commodity, particularly around central campus, as students vie for available spots near their classrooms. But the Dean of Students office provides a share-a-ride service that could help relieve some of the traffic congestion.


Carpooling lists are posted on the office Web site (dso.nmu.edu). An off-campus list is for local students who need a ride to NMU, and for vehicle owners willing to share their mode of transportation. A vacation carpool list is for students in need of a ride out of town Ė whether itís for a weekend visit home, a spring break road trip, or some other purpose.


"Itís a service we put together to help students," said Susan Verduin (Dean of Students). ďThe off-campus list has been really helpful, particularly in the winter. Both lists have been successful, and students really seem to appreciate the fact they are available and accessible from anywhere."


A similar service has been offered for several years on note boards in the University Center . While this is still used, Verduin said the online listings have been more effective.
