We’ve all been there. You’re running up the RB stairs to get to class thinking that there needs to be a better way. Maybe you’re trolling the parking lot for a spot and considering giving up on going to class at all. You see pictures of your friends on “fall break” adventures while you’re balancing two midterms and a research project. You spent all night studying for those midterms so you look for a soft place to rest during your one-hour break between classes.

Whether it’s escalators, valet parking, more breaks or nap rooms, we can all think of something that might make our lives at BYU a little better.What do you wish we had on BYU campus?

Sunflowers." — Derek Bradshaw, senior, environmental science, Parma, Idaho
