As the semester comes to a close, we want to take a moment to highlight the real MVP of finals week: Naps. The problem most students face this time of year is that with all the projects and tests to prepare for, sometimes a good night’s sleep has to be put on the back burner. The solution: Naps. And some students will nap just about anywhere, if the opportunity arises. So in this video, we ask students about their favorite nap spots around campus.
