SALT LAKE CITY — As finals week began Wednesday at the University of Utah, students passing through the J. Willard Marriott Library encountered an unexpected space to help them cope with their testing anxiety.

"The Cry Closet" stood in the middle of a busy passageway, ready to greet stressed-out students.

"I think everyone just needs a safe space sometimes, even if it's in a very public place," said the artist behind the project, senior student Nemo Miller.

Miller created 400-pound, stand-alone closet for a class project.

The front appears as if it was cut out of a wall, while the inside space is covered with soft materials and filled with stuffed animals and toys.

Rules posted for "The Cry Closet" instructed students to knock before entering, to only go in alone and to limit time spent inside to no more than 10 minutes.

Tuesday night, word had already quickly spread around the school through social media and the hashtag, #cryclosetuofu.

Several students stopped by to check out "The Cry Closet" and even spend some time inside.

"I just kind of thought it was funny," said Christian Hoole.

Stuart Hamill described the closet as "creepy."

"I mean, it's like a creepy closet with creepy stuffed animals," Hamill laughed.

Other students, like Corinne Doerner, said they appreciated the concept behind the functional art piece.

"My favorite place to cry is the shower, so I'll probably use that before the closet, but I like the idea," Doerner said.

Miller was in disbelief Tuesday night over the large response the project was getting. She will keep "The Cry Closet in place" through the end of finals.

Commencement at the University of Utah is scheduled on May 3.

Sounds like a nice place to have a movement. Just bring your own TP.

Whats old is new again, but with a neutral flavor so no one is left out and no one is offended or labeled.

Cry Closet vs Confessional take your pick, is there really a difference. Both a small box.

Looks like a worked over ballot box, maybe? Alot of crying there.

Stand up coffin, to pre test that "alone feeling"?

Really reminds me of the "amnesty" box there ran us through during intake before basic training, I had nothing to leave there but left the amnesty box with a couple cool things.

Seems to be a odd controversial site the op found the link... browsing that site also had this link, equally offensive.

Peoples lives have become too easy so they INVENT things to be offended by.
Very sad. Tell a War Veteran that you spent a few minutes in a cry closet and see what happens.

Might be good for people with PTSD. Give them a quiet place to take a break when they need one.

My point is the people with REAL problems would get really pissed at this sort of pansy idea.

Might just be a good place to sneak off and smoke a cigg if that was your thing.

I dont do either but when was the last time one could run off and have a cigg and a beer and not get harassed.

Id have to sneak in and hang a old centerfold.

Yep, a lot of crying here;

"The Charger has 4 doors."

"The Challenger is too big and heavy."

"Kids don't appreciate our old cars."

LOL

Lock it and knock it over so they have something to cry about. Or hook it to a truck and take them for a ride.
