    Hi, I just wanted to say: I believe that students who do not use transit or any of the multipass perks should not have to pay for the multipass. I do not use any of the services offered with the multipass and I do not use transit. I drive, pay car payments, car insurance, gas and pay for parking at KPU and pay for wear and tear repairs on my car. I wish there was a way to opt out of the multipass based on choice instead of the limitations they place for opting out. Why penalize some students just so other students can have a multipass and save money while other students are losing out $40 a month. I work and go to school and its hard enough for me to pay for school, my car and my daily expenses. This multipass is a bust! It just screws up everything in my budget. Now I work additional hours to earn the extra $40/mth which takes away from my studying time. I can’t take transit because it would take me forever to get to school and having my car is convenient and reliable and faster. If I have to pay for some students multipass, then why cant another student pay for my parking pass at KPU. This multipass is just a RIP OFF! I know others can understand my frustration because tuition is hard enough to pay, why do I have to pay for another unnecessary expense. If someone could please help me opt out of the multipass I would be so thankful. = ) Sorry to go on a rant, and I do support the Multipass because it is good for transit users but I do not support it at the expense of other students who drive or walk and do not use transit or the multipass perks. That is just unfair. If I can opt out of medical/dental why can’t I opt out of the multipass? KSA is for students and it should come up with something beneficial for all students, not just some.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing
    the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
