Argument: Students should be able to take their backpacks into the Cannon Center.
Reason: Allows for students to do school work and eat at the same time.
Assumption: Student grades will improve, if given more time on school work.
Claims: - Backpacks aren't allowed to be left in the hall, even when cubicles are all full.
- BYU shows that they can't trust the very students who they expect to follow the Honor Code by forcing them to leave their stuff outside, in fear of food being taken.
- It would give students more time to devote to other activities.
Argument: The Honor Code should not be enforced, rather there as guidelines to the way BYU would like you to live.
Reason: It would allow for students to follow it because they want to, not out of fear of it.
Assumption: More students will live the Honor Code equaling less problems.
Claims: - Students are more likely to follow things that are not forced upon them.
- Majority of students who attend BYU already agree with many parts of the Honor Code, making it unnecessary to enforce.
- Students from different cultures will be more attracted to attend BYU, creating more missionary opportunities.
Argument: Students should be allowed into sporting events for free, not through purchase of an all sports pass.
Reason: Students have a limited amount of discretionary income.
Assumption: More students will be more supporting of sporting events creating a bigger fan base.
Claims: - All athletes are put on a guest list, allowing them to get into any sporting event for free. Why don't regular students have that privilege?
- Students would be more willing to go to events because they can get in free.
- Students will be more willing to get involved in school activities in general.
