To the poster who was wondering wheterh to keep the "junky" car versus leasing another one....my friend who had the battery stolen drove a "junky" car. Car parts hold value whether u have a new car or an old clunker. But I must add, she parked on the street. As for being carjacked, I never even worried about that. Of course u want to lock ure doors when u are driving (common sense). The university as a whole has come a long way in the short 10 years since I graduated. They ahve increased parking on-campus and security is plentiful. When I was there, lack of security was a big issue and we had a "crime wave" on campus. am glad to know things have changed for the better. Definitely pay for parking and request an escort from campus police if u feel uncomfortable. I thinkk the dealwith Temple is, you will have a rude awakening if u are used to a laid back, small town where everyone leaves their doors unlocked. be aware of ure surroundings. In my 4 years there, i was never mugged, physically attacked or had anyting stolen. And yes, i did go out at night and sometimes alone.
