College classes are finishing up, which means it’s that stressful time of year: finals week.
A University of Utah student has come up with a unique way to help his peers cope with testing anxiety.
It’s called “The Crying Closet.” It’s a stand-alone closet, only big enough for one person at a time. The inside is covered with stuffed animals and a timer, to keep track of how long you’re inside.
Art student Nemo Miller invites students to go inside for a 10-minute crying session.
Miller created the exhibit for a class project, but it appears to be getting a positive response across campus. Some students say other colleges need to implement something like this, while other students just come to check it out for laughs.
“The Crying Closet” is expected to stay up at the University of Utah until finals week is over.
