Questions on Counseling

Lauren N. Reisig ’16 listens during an open forum about administrative changes at the Bureau of Study Counsel. Reisig voiced concerns about whether students with mental health concerns will need to attend University Health Services instead of the BSC. She said that she worries that students may not feel as comfortable going to UHS. UHS Director Dr. Paul J. Barreira responded by saying that the best way to deal with stigma regarding mental health is to attempt to change the perception of it.

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?
