Can We Build a Bridge?
The surrey Campus is known for its beautiful architectural and multi levels design; it allows the campus to have a spacious and modern look. However, the design does not allow students to travel efficiently from one side of the campus to the other. Here is an example. In order to travel from one class room located directly across, and above the other class room that they wanted to go, students have to walk to the stairs located at the middle section of the building, then go up those stairs and around the school in order to get to their class room. This process takes too long and is very inconvenient. Furthermore there should be a more efficient way for student to get around the building instead of making all these lengthy trips.
In order to allow student to travel around the campus more efficiently, a bridge should be built on each level connecting from one side of the building to the other. This would save time for students and allowing them to get to class room quicker and easier. This is extremely crucial during exam and midterm period where students are very tired and energy deficient. By making them walk all the way around the campus to their classrooms, this would increase the potential of fatigue and increase the possibility of poor performance in a major exam. Furthermore, since SFU Surrey has a very well known design program, "Interactive Art and Technology”, students at SFU should demonstrate to the community and the world that they can design a campus that is both architecturally sound and at same time allowing easy access to all the class rooms.
