University of Utah has created “cry closets” for snowflakes stressed over finals
The University of Utah has created a space for students stressed out over finals. The “cry closets” are a place to let it all hang out.
“Just let it all out,” university spokeswoman Jana Cunningham told the station. “Let yourself just get away from your studies for the next 10 minutes.”
KSL-TV reports Miller, a senior, created the 400-pound, stand-alone closet for students who need a “safe space sometimes, even if it’s in a very public place.”
“I think one of these should be everywhere all the time,” student Jayde Allison told KUTV while laughing. “Just its name, ‘The Cry Closet,’ is a little funny because definitely finals is a time to cry and panic.”
The “cry closets” are located in the middle of the campus at the J. Willard Marriott Library. The closets were created by Miller as a class project an have padded walls and stuffed animals and toys for students to play with.
Rules are posted inside the “cry closets” instructing students to knock before entering, to only go in alone and to limit time spent inside to no more than 10 minutes.
The closets will only be in the library for finals week.
Cry closets are only one of the reason the current generation of snowflakes cannot cope with life. These students need to learn that they are in the easiest part of their life. It only gets harder after college and you cannot always escape to a padded room and play with stuffed animals. It is sickening how much Universities are screwing students in the form of tuition and how poorly they are preparing them for life.
