Dear 100 Hour Board,

There is a place on campus, somewhat in between the ESC and the MARB, where there is an area which appears to contain just a couple of Dumpsters. However, also in this half-walled off area, there is a sloped path leading to a platform of sorts, with two benches. What is the purpose of that, other than to accommodate those who like to watch garbage, or those who want a somewhat secluded spot on campus?

A: Dear Count-fondue:

BYU, in an effort to maintain its self-designated reputation as "a very beautiful campus" puts garden areas in as many nooks and crannies as possible, and then puts benches in those garden areas so people can sit there and think "oh, what a beautiful campus."
