There's one sight that's more common than almost any other on campus, and, surprisingly, it's not nasty hair. No, what I see more often than not is people passed out on sundry objects, such as the floor, couches, benches, chairs, the lawn, etc.

Walking through campus is kind of like this:

Hey, who needs to go to a big city like New York or LA when you can see sad sights like this in your own backcampus?

I admit, though, that I have on occasion succumbed to slumber on campus. Most notably the benches in the JSB. One day I woke up to a text from my bestie, Kaitlynn, asking what I was doing.

Me: Uh, just woke up from a nap.

Kaitlynn: In your apartment? Don't you have class soon?

Me: Uh....on a bench.

Kaitlynn: What the heck? They let you do that?

Me: I guess so. There are people sleeping all over campus.

Kaitlynn: Man, BYU is like the home of the legalized bums.

After seeing these pictures I stole from Seen @BYU on Facebook, I'm sure you'll be compelled to agree.

I know sleep is supposedly hard to come by as a college student, but some of these are just ridiculous. I just might have to start carrying Police Crime Scene tape around.

Ah, so true. I admit I have been one to sleep on a bench in the Spori building at BYU-I. Sometimes you're just exhausted and home is too far away.

Those benches are pretty comfy in the Spori Bran! And Becca, those pics are pretty awesome- it's true that some of those people have the appearance of being dead. PS- Sleeping on the grass in front of the Hinckley up here, while it is still warm, is amazing :)
