Summary: Beautiful Campus. Everything is Great. The only negative is maybe the area surrounding the campus isn't the greatest but there does seem to be a lot of security. Parking: Tip - Park at PS1. PS2 might be good too but PS1 is solid. I parked at PSX and PSD for a while and it was always a pain in the ass. Hard to turn into the parking from the street first of all and then the parking is full of speedbumps and not easy to find parking. PS1 has none of these problems.
