New Parking Decal


Tuesday, June 03, 2014

I went to FSU Card Center and exchanged my old Faculty/Staff Parking Decal for a new one. Today was the second day they were doing the exchange but today’s location was closest to my work.

The process was quick and I spent probably few minutes. I took the old one off of my car and gave it to them. They gave a new one which I quickly put it on my car’s driver side lower left front glass.
