Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
Many prophets have buildings named after them here at BYU. Which prophets don't, and why? What does it take to have a building named after you if you're a prophet?
- Eric

A: Dear Eric,
The buildings on campus are generally named after a preeminent figure in the church who is significant in some way to the university or discipline with which they are associated. Thus the Eyring science center is named after the prominent scientist, in honor of his incredible contributions to the university the Ernest L. Wilkinson center was built, named, and dedicated. There is a story behind each building's name, which can be found with a little searching (byu's homepage is a good place to start- under "About BYU").
