Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Parking remained a serious problem on campus. Despite gas shortages and long lines at filling stations, students still jammed into available lots. By September 1975, the college was expecting an enrollment of 22,000, and there were 2,200 parking spaces. Despite an oil shortage, spikes in gas prices, and long lines to buy a limited amount of gasoline, students still used their cars as their primary means of transportation. The November 3, 1978 Hornet reported that a survey of 6,245 Fullerton College Students showed that 84.1 percent used a car as their sole means of transportation to and from school. Only 1.3 percent, the lowest percentage in the mode of transportation category, used carpools.
