Need to find a parking spot on campus? Hitch a ride with Ally Marcelo.

In August, more than 700 students participated in NKU's Facebook Parking Contest, in which one lucky winner would snag a primo parking space for the rest of the semester.

Ally - an 18-year-old from Cincinnati - is in her first semester at NKU and heard about the Facebook contest from her Dad.

She immediately went on the site and registered. When she found out she'd won, she says she couldn't believe it.

"I was pumped," she says. "I thought NKU was great even before this. In high school I came on a campus visit and everyone was so welcoming."

Ally is thinking about majoring in nursing and says she normally tries to park in one of the campus garages.

"But they fill up quick," she says.

Now, she won't have to worry about it anymore.
