    1. Well-designed and connected networks of indoor and open spaces on campuses can be key

      By having resources for students nearby makes it easier to get help and succeed.

    2. Students spend most of their tightly structured learning time indoors

      Sometimes being indoor getting boring because there's no excitement in the room like colors or posters. I get sleepy by starring at blank walls.

      meaning without a clearly defined shape or form.

    4. Learning is a lifelong and year-round pursuit

    5. Americans expect a university campus to look different than other places

      Why just "Americans"?

    6. all campus spaces, whether indoor or outdoor, instructional or non-instructional, become significant components of a student’s everyday experience.

      As a GSU student experiencing the indoor and outdoor environment is what makes GSU that much greater

    9. “that open space must be treated as a scarce resource”

      Since GSU is in downtown Atlanta, space is highly limited. They use every possible space to create something new for the school.

      I totally agree with this statement, but on the other hand other people would disagree because they would believe thats just how the architecture was design.

      I never thought the government would do something so small like designing a small bench just so that the homeless people could not have comfortable place to sleep.

    4. Social norms encouraged some to threaten undesirable persons with violence if they were to enter or remain in certain spaces.

      These acts of violence does not solve anything because to this present day racism still occurs in America.

      In the 1950s white people would protest and create huge signs in front of their businesses to keep color people away from them.

    6. Bridges were designed to be so low that buses could not pass under them in order to prevent people of color from accessing a public beach.
