Parking fines at Coastal Carolina University accounted for $300,000 of gross revenue in 2011. That's enough to cover the tuition of seven students for four years.
Of course, this is isn't pure profit. There's a lot of expense we're not seeing in this particular report. Well over half of a million dollars is attributed to parking permits and tickets. Regardless, it's an interesting bit of trivia that came from The Sun News Opinion Blog where they also mention that the University is actively building more available parking space.
