The students sound spoiled.

The inmates are running the place. Once you give a voice to a bunch of smart, idealistic teenagers you’re in trouble. Problem is that the professors think similarly.

As Ivy League students, they are entitled to be Masters of the Universe. This is where our ruling class comes from. Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama. These people will rule over us and tell us how to live our lives.

But first, they need a nap.

This sounds more like a pre-school than Harvard University. How valuable will a diploma from Harvard be after these changes are in effect? I know that this Ivy League school will still charge Ivy League prices for the privilege of spending four years in Cambridge, but would you really want to pay a professional salary to someone who takes naps in the middle of the day?

We had this privilege at UC Berkeley in the 1950s. There were hidden “nap rooms” (segregated male and female) all over campus. I remember one, in particular, adjoining the Ladies’ Room in the main library. And there were some in the gym, too.

These darkened rooms had as many as a dozen beds made up with fresh, starched, ironed, pink sheets and could be accessed at will by any student in need of a nap between classes. I do not remember any monitors and I don’t know how ofen the sheets were changed. Theyalways looked brand new. I don’t know what the male rooms were llike because I wouldn’t have dared to peek in there.

I have often wondered what happened to these oases of retreat during the campus riots in the late 60’s. I’ll bet they were closed after the students demolished all rules of decorum.

Speaking as someone who had a retained search division of my Consulting Co. I would never haire anyone from Harvard, especially Harvard Law. they will ruin a business due to their arrogance. They think they should start at the top. Leading indicators for a managers success is:
1. Track record - moving up in responsibility
2. Technical education medium grades(4.0 folks get lazy)
3. Referrals, but not the ones on the resume’, but talk to the persons co workers, and assistants, not the HR department.

I have spoken

“Hou complemented the petition, which received 184 votes, with an online survey.

“Of the 432 undergraduates who responded, only 21 percent felt well-rested on a typical day. Almost 60 percent of those surveyed were in favor of a designated nap room in the Yard.”

Oh, yeah. This is really, really popular at Harvard. It’s absolutely the focus of every undergrad in the place. Not.

There are 6500 undergraduates at Harvard. Almost 3% of them saw fit to sign this petition, and almost 7% expressed an opinion, one way or the other, in an on-line survey, with only 60% of respondents favoring the proposal. Or, in other words, almost 4% of undergrads.
