One Utah student, identified at Jacks on Twitter, shared this hilarity and the story went viral. Take a look.
As finals week approaches and students try to learn a semester’s worth of information in a few days, it’s likely many will have the inclination to weep. But with campus libraries teeming with students, it can be tricky to locate a private space to shed a tear.
A student at the University of Utah has invented a solution to the pressure of finals week, which begins at the college today: a library “cry closet.”

“The space is meant to provide a place for students studying for finals to take a short 10-minute break.”
And, there are rules listed: Knock before entering, only one person inside at a time, limit time inside to 10 minutes and turn the lights out before leaving.
On Tucker Carlson: “College students tend to get stressed out by finals but if you attend the University of Utah you have an option. It’s called the ‘cry closet’. The closet is a creation of an art student called Nemo Miller and it exists for stressed-out students who can step into it for up to ten minutes of crying to help cope with the tests.
The closet interior includes fuzzy stuffed animals for maximum coping. Question is is it time to go national with these weeping wardrobes erected across this fragile country? Only one woman can make the case for that and she, of course, is Cathy Arun the founding publisher of Catalina magazine and our liberal Sherpa.
So, at first glance, it seems so confusing because College, of course, is the least stressful place there is. I mean, it’s already a yoga rich, well sure I mean you go to class for two hours a week and get drunk the rest of the time.
