Down the Galleria
Although the campus at SFU Surrey may seem comparatively small to that of the campus at SFU Burnaby, it is still a nuisance having to walk from one class to the next down the Galleria.
There could be a myriad of reasons for the design of the Galleria but the fact is that it's a huge inconvenience. On one hand, one could believe that the longer walk is intended to promote exercise for students suffering from "freshman 15" Another advantage to this design would be that students are able to yell across the way for dramatic effect when wanting to embarrass their friend who stands coolly with their other friends.
On the contrary, there seems to be no purpose for the long hallways of the Galleria. Students must make the trek from one class to the next in a span of ten whole minutes, when it should really take a few. Not only is it annoying having to lug around heavy textbooks, laptops, and other academic accessories, but sometimes this problem also crosses paths with another. The students meet with the likes of other irritated students who have other problems to deal with. There's more to be concerned about on campus rather than the walk from room 3300 to room 3100. There is absolutely no need for students to deal with the burdens of a long journey when the deadline for their assignment is due in two minutes’ time and they must rush and play human frogger to get to the drop box in time.
However, if there was ever a suggestion for future renovations, I would vote for a bridge to be built between one side of the galleria to the other. With the implementation of such a bridge, students would be able to dash from one side of the Galleria to the other without having to run the long way, especially in an instance where their bladder is the reason for the student to be in such a rush.
