According to the rules posted, the closet is described as a “safe place for stressed-out students.” For privacy’s sake the room is only meant to be used by one person at a time.
Yooooo!! I’m THE Cry Closet Creator ™️. I’m so stoked that the response has been so incredible!!

The closet — referred to on social media, using the hashtag #cryclosetuofu, is surrounded with padded walls and floor, as well as a few stuffed animals. The life of a student is filled with stress and anxiety; oftentimes during #FinalsSzn these feelings are heightened. The fact that this was built by a student and was not an additional cost to the student body or the school raises the question of whether something like this is needed at every university.
It’s all fun and games until somebody has a complete meltdown because the Cry Closet is already occupied. https://t.co/3AAUmjykpp
