ask about the HONY approach to subjective

The GSU quad discourages unity. Lack of seating and wide over populated walkways disable students from gathering socially and especially academically. Unity in a college setting requires a place for scholars to work towards academic success, and there is no area for sitting much less writing or working on a computer. Condensed overpopulated space does not facilitate togetherness. Places that would be considered “seating” are taken by smokers which discourage non-smokers to gather in the same place.

Most of writing is devoted to the explanation in an argument.
