During the Spring semester, there were two stress-related suicides. Stress is a very real problem at CMU, and one that should be addressed. The stressful culture that CMU cultivates makes it hard for students to explore spaces outside of Carnegie Mellon’s campus. Students are often in the library all day and all night. This confinement of space only adds to the stress CMU students face. Nature Room exists to help break this confinement and give students the opportunity to explore nature and relax, without having to spend valuable time leaving campus. Students could be working on a project with a tight deadline and not have the 20 minutes to get out and enjoy nature. Thus, we bring the nature to them. It's our hope that the time they spend relaxing in this room will alleviate their stress.
