Snooze Spots: Where to Sleep on Harvard's Clock

Let’s play word association: Nap! Acceptable answers are only “I want one” or “If only I had the time.” Squeezing those shut-eyed moments of pure bliss into your busy schedule can be difficult. Between all of the procrastinating on Facebook, dawdling at the Kong, and avoiding last night’s hook-up, there is often only a small window to hit the sack and take a nap. You rush out of class, bleary-eyed and bushy- tailed, but you live so far away! Where can you possibly go to responsibly catch some afternoon Zzz’s and wake up in a sweaty panic, wondering what the heck the time is and why it’s so dark out?

Harvard University Dining Services staff member Hector A. Santizo embraces his co-workers during his first visit back to campus since fracturing his leg while traveling to work in early February. Santizo, 64, has worked at Harvard in Adams House for 25 years. “I was so shocked when they told me,” said Teodora Lara, far right, smiling at Santizo. “Because, you know, we appreciate him a lot. We do.” Santizo’s co-workers tried to convince him to stay to eat dinner with them, but he had to leave as his wife, Myriam, who also works at Harvard, was on the way to pick him up.
