The Daily Universe staff conducted a study experiment on accessible doors to see how equal access to school buildings are affected. The Daily Universe newsroom staff checked buildings across campus on Feb. 28 and found 30 door access buttons buttons out of 114 it tested were either broken, out of sync with the doors or obstructed by an object like a bench or a box. In the Brimhall Building, where the Universe newsroom is located, a project to move the elevator buttons to make them more accessible has been underway for several weeks but is not yet finished. We applaud the staff, lead by the leadership of students for testing each button on BYU campus and committing their time and energy to finding the doors so they can be fixed.
