Default Ivy League school eliminates overdue library book fines because they ‘stress’ out stu

Safe space snowflake power recipe; now with 30% more cupcakes!

Way to set these spoiled, self-entitled pricks up for life; teach 'em there's no such thing as responsibility and all they gotta do is whine 'bout bein' stressed or not bein' safe and the world will bow down and cater to 'em.

Maybe I can stop payin' bills since it stresses me out.

Or perhaps I can get free hookers since not gettin' laid can be a real stresser.

Millennials are the biggest morons in American history.

Ivy League school eliminates overdue library book fines because they ‘stress’ out students – TheBlaze

Quote:
College is stressful. Lingering assignments, upcoming exams, and demanding extracurricular activities are enough to stress out even the best students. Now, one of the nation’s most prominent Ivy League schools is looking to make the college experience a little less stressful.

According to the Harvard University Crimson student newspaper, the Cambridge, Massachusetts, campus will no longer impose late fees on overdue library books. Currently, students have to pay 50 cents for every day a book is late.

Steven Beardsley, associate director for access services administrative operations and special projects at Harvard University, told the Crimson that the change will “allow students to devote more time to their research and coursework.”

Beardsley said that by having no late late fees for library books, it will allow the college to “embrace a ‘One Harvard’ approach.”

So the students with phones that cost more than my rent are stressed over 50 cents a day?...:rolf2

How about "No fees are paid because students are RESPONSIBLE and bring back their FREELY BORROWED books on time."...

It's funny how Millennial cupcakes can't afford 50 cents a day but have no prob swingin' spring break vacations with hotels, tanker trucks full of beer, and barrels of tequila.

And that doesn't even include their fancy rides, high tech cell phones, trendy clothes, and a body full of tats that cost more than my car.

Thing is, college students in and of themselves, are not likely 'rich'. Their lives in the real world haven't even begun.

After all, IF they work, according to some, they are paid nothing if they hold a part time job, are slaves to their employers, can't afford to live on their own, are in debt up to their eyebrows for their college education, and shouldn't have to pay for college.

What, exactly, is there to be jealous of?

Well, those millenial snowflakes should be able to have a very fancy basement to themselves when they move back in with their mommies and daddies.

With the fees students pay at those school EVERYTHING should be free.

no excuse for the babies being "stressed" about library fines.
but coming out of college with loans bigger than many house payments is insane.
wait till that stress hits.

I get stressed out every time I hear one of these snowflake stories. So, where's my cookie? I deserve free government stuff.
