The “Cookies & Coloring Study Break” occurs once a week at the Chaplain’s Office in an area known as the “Breathing Space.” Students can “take an hour to put down your phone, color (don’t worry there’s no judging your artistic ability), have a freshly baked cookie, and great conversation.”
The “Bouncy Castle” will be coming in spring to help with anxiety relief needs. Students can bounce out their stress by following the hashtag #YaleChaplainsBounce.
Providing non-gluten free cookies could land the Chaplain’s Office in hot water not to mention the Honda generator that keeps the castle inflated may trigger those students who suffer from climate change anxiety. Being Christians, it will be open season for attack if deemed not inclusive enough.
Which begs the question whether the institution of crèches in the workplaces of today is actually just preparation for these students when they graduate?
