The purpose of this study was to determine if there is a lack of parking at Lindenwood University (LU), and if that problem could be solved if more students who currently drive to class would walk instead. Research shows that college students in America are not getting enough exercise, and that walking has many health benefits. Data were collected using a survey with 40 LU students. Data were also collected through observations of the parking lots on campus. The results show that there are always empty parking spots on campus, 67.5% of participants believe that there is not enough parking on campus, 72.5% agree that more students should walk to class, and that 75% of participants who live in LU owned houses drive to class.
