Maternal surnames are omitted from many answerlines where authors use their father's family name primarily (Paz, Fuentes, Borges, Donoso, etc.) and in my experience, Span...

Re: NAC 2011

Tuttle Park Place Garage is the closest to Central Classrooms. The Ohio Union South Garage and Neil Ave. Garage are also relatively close. Parking at any of these garages will be $5.
