Best Places To Sob Uncontrollably At WPI

Let's be real: engineering is hard. Math is hard. Anything even remotely related to STEM is hard. Sometimes, all you need to do is just sit down somewhere and sob uncontrollably. Thankfully, there are a myriad of places that are perfect for mathematically sobbing

1. The campus center

There are some pretty comfy chairs in the upper level of the campus center that are sometimes just what you need when IQP's got you down. Or Calc. III. Or Physics 1111/11121. Bonus: they have Ben and Jerry's in the food court.

2. Institute Park

If you're willing to go outside, Institute Park is a pretty nice place if you need to scream into the void at all hours of the night over exams. Also, there's tree and it gets you out of your dorm for a bit.

3. A practice room at Alden Memorial

You can bang out your frustrations on the piano, if you're musically inclined. Even if you're not blessed with musicality, you can still hear other people practice. It's okay to cry to the sounds of a beautiful violin concerto or a piano sonata.

4. Empty classrooms on the weekend

Who's really going to judge you if you snag an empty classroom in Salisbury or AK just for crying purposes. Also, who really goes into lecture halls on the weekends? It just ensures you will have total privacy.

5. Laurie Leshin's office hours

Laurie Leshin is a godsend to WPI and thank goodness for her office hours. President Leshin is a very understanding woman, and you can also ask her about her work on the Mars Curiosity rover. Or ask for confirmation on the fact that WPI is cooler than RPI.

6. The shower

In Riley 3, you can cry about how the women's bathroom is essentially a small scale Niagara Falls. Or even sob about that one lab that's just driving you insane.

7. Your dorm

We're all going to do it at one point, let's be real. Also you can take a nap afterwards and forget all about your exam tomorrow.

8. POD/ Daka

Sometimes all you need is a booth and some DAKA cookies. Or a lot of DAKA cookies. While you're at it, snag some DAKA cookies the next time you need to cry about exams.

9. Near the Foisie Innovation Studio

If housing's got you down, there is no better revenge than screaming at the construction site of Foisie so you can complain about how unnecessarily hectic the housing application process is.

10. By a Gompei Statue

Sometimes crying near the school's beloved mascot will make you feel better. Gompei understands. Gompei gets it. Just don't be in the way of some idiot who stepped on the seal and has to break the curse.
