Normandale Community College is planning to increase its parking space by 724 parking spots. According to the article, Normandale College has received the “approval of the Bloomington Planning commission to construct a 724-space, on campus ramp… a 76,000-square-foot Academic Partnership, which is to be connected to the existing Kopp Student Center” (Startribune). This is due to the fact that the enrollment of students at Normandale Community College has increased 10% since last year. Normandale is using the tactic of ‘education comes first’, without enough parking spaces students would have trouble getting to school on time and would also get students frustrated. Also, students have been complaining to Normandale Administrators to handle the parking situation and make it easier for them to find a parking lot.
Since 2012 the cost for one year, at university (fees), has been as high as £9,000. A law degree takes at least three years, so that will be £18,000 and on top of that the students need a place to live in, food and what not at university.

Put all together you have a minimum cost at £30,000. The expenses scare a lot of able candidates away from the profession, able candidates from poorer families either take up a loan or they choose another profession.
Safety at CSUN Dear Officer Vanscoy, Imagine a student who carries an expensive laptop to school everyday. One particular week she has numerous tests and essays to complete. Instead of heading home after a long day of Friday classes, she heads to the dining hall and has a meal and does some work for a couple of hours.

Unfortunately this situation was a true scenario, but luckily, it didn’t go further than the student feeling very uncomfortable.

According to Trends in College Spending, a study done by the delta cost project, "Enrollment in U.S. postsecondary institutions totaled almost 18.6 million students in the 2008 academic year, a nearly 26 percent increase over the ten-year period beginning in 1998." The increase in demand for a college education has directly influenced college costs. It's simple economics, when demand goes up the price of the product being demanded will increase.

In recent years, thousands of the world’s best and brightest people have been denied H1-B visas that are issued to immigrants with special skills or education. Former governor of New Mexico and U.S. Secretary of Energy Bill Richardson says the system needs to change, “so that skilled workers, engineers, computer specialists that are here on student visas, can stay and create jobs in the American economy." The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business organizations favor a large expansion of H1-B visas especially for talented people from around the world who study at U.S. universities on student visas, but cannot stay after they graduate. The ones who do stay are in high demand, according to Massey Villareal, president of Precision Task Group in Houston. “We spend over $30,000 a month just on
