Big University to Install ‘Cry Closet’ to Help Snowflake Students Cope With Finals


The University of Utah is taking things to the next level by installing “cry closets” — with lots of stuffed animals — to help students cope with their finals.

TheBlaze reports:

The closet, an art installation, according to KSTU-TV, was student-crafted and is designed as a “safe space” for students to cry it out if they’re too overwhelmed by college life.

On display at the university’s Marriott Library, the closet bears instructions that reads, “A Safe Place for Stressed Out Students.”

“This space is meant to provide a place for students studying for finals to take a short 10 minute break,” the note adds.

We are not joking, have a look at it:

Some of the closet’s “rules” include:

-Knock before entering;
-Only one person in the closet at a time;
-Limit your time in the closet to no more than 10 minutes;
-Turn lights and timer off before leaving;
-Use #cryclosetuofu if posting on social media;


Nemo Miller, the closet’s creator and a senior in the college’s fine arts program, told Inside Higher Ed, “I am interested in humanity and the inherent complexities of the human condition. In my work, I reflect on my experiences and explore what it means to be human. One aspect of humanity that I am currently exploring is connections and missed connections through communication. It’s been interesting to watch the response to this piece about human emotions, and I’m proud to see the power of art in action.”

With each passing day the evidence that supports the idea that this generation of young people is hopelessly doomed continues to build.
