A University in the Netherlands is helping its students cope with the stress of exams by providing them a grave.
The Mirror reports that Radboud University, located in Nijmegen, a town in the Netherlands, has a dug a “purification grave” so that students can reflect on life and cope with anxiety during exam periods.
The educational institution also gives nap pods, counseling, and a space called “crying room.”
The gravesite is at the back of the student church and is an open hole in the ground. A mat is provided by the Chaplaincy and a pillow if the students want it. A sign inside the grave says “stay weird.”
The project has been widely accepted by the students and there is usually a waiting list to secure an early grave.
John Hacking, the initiator of the project works at the student chapel and says that the project would help the young people appreciate life’s beauty.
