Ample parking, easier to get to for more people, including those in  
Ypsi, we can hear each other, and we don't have to worry about a limit

Brilliant! The person who came up with this has my compliments!
And, one last item to ask is whether there is a bus out there for any  
UofM students?
Regardless, the advantages outweigh the potential ride sharing...
