Reunion Homecoming, Inauguration to put crimp in parking

With Reunion Homecoming Weekend, the presidential inauguration and other university events scheduled for later in the week, members of the Stanford community might find parking to be more of a problem than usual.

Carolyn Manning, vice president of the Stanford Alumni Association (SSA), points out that parking spots by Lasuen Street and Museum Way and other areas near the Graduate School of Business -- which is marking its 75th anniversary with various events -- will be at a premium.

The SAA is expecting a record 6,000 alumni and guests starting Thursday, and off-campus visitors will attend Friday morning's inauguration of President John Hennessy.

"I just want to raise people's antenna that there will be a lot of extra visitors on campus," Manning says. "A couple of lots will be more full than usual."

Manning says free tickets to the inauguration ceremony are available to Stanford community members on a first-come, first-served basis from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Stanford Ticket Office and at the Visitor Information Center in Memorial Auditorium.
