The Crimson reports that undergraduates are petitioning the dean for nap space in Harvard Yard. “People don’t realize how important it is to take a nap,” said the student who started the petition. “It improves your GPA because you’re actually more focused.”
I should probably be glad that the student body has recovered from the cheating scandal and is returning its attention to silly ideas. Of course getting enough sleep is not a silly idea, but let's remember that virtually all undergraduates live in College housing, at worst 20 minutes from where the classrooms are. There is free bus service. Or they could just go to bed earlier. Does someone really need to say this sort of thing?
Recalling a previous piece of impish student silliness, I blogged a few days ago in Harvard Wins the Super Bowl, "at some point, deans really have to tell students to act like grownups." This would be a fine place to make the point before the university once again turns up on the Daily Show!
