Hi, I currently live about 45 minutes away from Rice. I wasn't quite sure if I should bring my car to the campus when I attend this fall. I know it's convenient for me to just drive back and forth between home and Rice on weekends occasionally without having my parents to pick me up. However, I was concerned if other students would "use" me and take advantage of the fact that I have a car. Also, is it easy for freshman to get a parking spot anyway? What does that entail? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
