The Map of Naps


The Best Places to Grab a Nap on Campus

By | Domanique Crawford

The morning arose with a dullness that had you wanting to fall back into the warmth of your bed and wishing for a couple of more hours of sleep.

Grunting, you roll over and reach for your pipe deciding that a morning wake and bake ‘sesh’ is the perfect way to start your day on a high note. As the bowl is lit, you know by noon that you are going to be in need of a nap and yet, you still can’t resist.

At last, there are a thousand things you need to accomplish today and there is no time to indulge even for few more minutes. Plus, if you miss another class, your professor could take away precious attendance points that keep you from getting that A in your class.
As predicted, by noon you are ready to perish. There is absolutely no way you’re going to make it home and back and be on time for your next class. And no way you want to be the fool who falls asleep during a lecture.
A nap is definitely called for. But where?
