    If you have any classes after 6:00 PM, park on Mill. It's a lot closer, and it's free. I finally learned this lesson in my senior year.

    This area was centered around the Hayden Flour Mill, known as the oldest industrial site in the Valley. It closed shop in 1997, but there are rumors of plans to redevelop the area for visitors.
