Students rush through the modern world language hallway, pushing through the right side of traffic in order to get to their classrooms.

Walnut is known for its large population. With over 2,000 students, the hallways can get jammed pretty often, however, there are alternative ways to get to certain areas in the school by avoiding the traffic. 

For example, in between classes, the Science Wing gets very backed up on both floors. Just by going outside and avoiding this hallway, you can save yourself so much time getting to class. 

Many of the causes and issues of traffic jams can be compared to the same jams that occur while driving on the road. When students stand in the middle of the hallways, without making any effort to move, they can cause the traffic in the hallways to pile up, just like on the road. A really good way to not have this issue is to keep moving and to avoid standing in the hallway without a purpose. 

Students also tend to vary in speeds. There can be anything from Effies running through the hallway or annoyed SENIORS, walking too slow. In many cases, students won’t go around them, causing the entire hallway to walk slower. You should attempt to match the speed of everyone else in the hallway when you walk.  

Students tend to walk in groups in the hall as well. When you walk in a large group, you will usually walk slower, and when there is a row of four people blocking the hallway, no one has room to go around you. This causes the entire hallway to slow down. 

Slow hallways can make students late, agitated and more prone to physical altercation. Many students will shove a person out of their way if they are walking slowly, or standing in the way. 

Students should be courteous to others in the hallway in order to ensure students stay calm and get to class on time
