Even though it’s not the official “Senior Lot,” it has still been known around the school as the place where some of the seniors park. Lately, juniors have been parking there, and this has caused some seniors grief.
When I get to school and go looking for a spot in the Senior Lot, I find that all the spaces are taken, and a lot of them are occupied by juniors. To me this is frustrating; I waited until I was a senior to park here. Why can’t they? I don’t think that some juniors should feel like they can park there, it’s not their turn.
“I think it’s disrespectful that they park there. I never parked there until my senior year. It’s just like the senior pit: it’s a privilege for seniors not for juniors,” says Maggie Woodhouse ’15.
And even though it’s not totally meant for the seniors, it feels more like a rite of passage. You’ve been at school for four years and here is a little something. It’s something that the juniors should look forward to, not feel entitled to have. The class of 2015 waited for their time, and now class of 2016 should wait too.
“They take the spots that we want and fill it up. We waited, so they should too,” says Emerson McIntosh ’15.by
