No. Freaking. Way. Is this for real? If this isn’t a sign of the times, I don’t know what is! 

The New York Post is reporting that Florida State University just created a mandatory online class for incoming freshmen this year to help them handle the STRESS that comes with going off to college, moving on campus, and handling their workload. However, they’re offering everyone an option to SKIP the mandatory class… IF… they think that doing it would make them too stressed. What the… WHAT!? The class is only about a half hour long, and it’s mostly just videos of older students telling them what they can expect.  And there’s no test or anything at the end to worry about. 

But, if they skip the class… how will they know where the campus cry room is? I kid. I kid.
