Calling All Parents! Helicopter Colleges Put Students To Bed!

First we heard about helicopter parents, and now we learn that we have helicopter colleges!

It’s been reported that many of the Commonwealth’s prestigious colleges and universities have noticed that their students are sleep-deprived.

Not to worry!  These bastions of learning are on the case!

Wellesley College is throwing pajama parties complete with popcorn to tuck in the kiddies, I mean students.

MIT has integrated a relaxation program (read: sleeping class) into the curriculum.

Bentley College hosts “The Biggest Snoozer” and distributes such freebies as white noise

machines and memory foam pillows to snoozers logging the most sleep hours.

An early entry into the helicopter college field was Stanford, which in 1997 published “Sleepless at Stanford.”
