File this under "you gotta be kidding me!" But yes, friends, it's true - some universities have started to offer a valet service to assist students, faculty and visitors who are either having trouble finding a parking spot or are just running late for class. According to the website of the University of Southern California:
Running late to class? Late for a meeting? Can’t find parking? Don’t stress!
USCTransportation now offers DAILY valet parking services.
As Robin Leach might say, "but the luxurious pampering doesn't stop there for those students lucky enough to be attending Florida International University" because they even offer a car wash and wax service so you can step into a sparkling new ride once classes are over.
"Champagne wishes and caviar dreams" indeed.
Whatever happened to getting to campus early enough to find a parking space? And how long before this trend hits law school campuses?
Hat tip to Inside Higher Ed.
I am the scholarship dude.
