Maybe the Social Justice Warriors should be dreaming about transferring to a university that might actually prepare them for the real world.

A new interactive art installation is opening the door for students to share their future dreams of diversity through “Nap-Ins” in Morris Library.

Student coordinator Marissa Amposta is facilitating four sleep sessions in March where students will be given the opportunity to nap for two hours in the rotunda during the library’s operating hours….

“The nap-ins are part of the internal journey to diversity,” Amposta said. “All dreams start while sleeping.”

The nap-ins are part of the Dreaming Diversity Art Installation, which was established Monday. The exhibit consists of a 15-foot-long fabric scroll hanging directly in the middle of the library rotunda that has students’ dreams written on pieces of fabric and paper.

A labyrinth will also be set up in the rotunda surrounding the scroll to “help guide students to their dreams,” Amposta said.

“The maze is sort of a metaphor for the general path to diversity,” Amposta said. “It takes a while to reach, and it’s complicated.”….

“People forget we are still working for equality,” said Nicole Tabor, graduate assistant coordinator of the Women’s Resource Center. “It might never happen if we stop fighting.”….

    The notions of naps is doubly appropriate, in that the “nappy” students are either still wearing diapers (known in the vernacular as a “nappy”) and/or they are “diverse”, as symbolized by “nappy” hair.

    But in all seriousness, I love a good nap as a tonic for a bit of restoration. And I did indeed learn this at college, this being an indirect and certainly unintentional consequence of the assigned curriculum.

    Apropos pic as the SIU mascot is the Saluki, reflecting the southern Illinois region nickname of Little Egypt (hence the Daily Egyptian). (the great rivers, Mississippi and Ohio surround the area and are thought to reflect the Nile delta) I hope the SJWs there don’t bemoan cultural appropriation. One alumnus of SIU is Richard Roundtree. Cue music…

    Sounds like a commune to me. Going back to bed.
