My suggestions for future student demand that would "enhance productivity": complimentary professional spa services, individualized course assistants who walk students through their assignments or possibly do the assignments for them to spare them the stress of personal responsibility, and campus rickshaw service to save the time it takes to walk from one end of the Yard to the other or, even more arduously, from the Yard all the way to CGIS or SEAS, so that students can get more done in the few minutes they save. As for spaces, I propose building several "hot tub spaces" in the Yard for relaxation, and maybe a ball pit or two, along with the installation of a playground, some low-impact carnival rides, and other diversions that would help students achieve better "work/life balance." Also, obviously, a comfortable and well-equipped "sex space" is in order, for the ultimate in relaxation and stress relief. It goes without saying that all these improvements ought to be located inside the Yard, because as we've seen, traveling more than 200 ft for something is an outrageous demand on busy, hard-working students.
Miss Self-Important also fully endorses the proposal for more "brain breaks," whatever those are, for the very important reasons presented:
As a Drug and Alcohol Peer Advisor, Margaret E. Crane ’14, who proposed the petition, questioned why brain break isn’t offered on weekend nights. “Providing students with food past 7 p.m. will allow them to have a full stomach if they choose to drink, and create a social space in the dining hall,” Crane said.Harvard has failed to facilitate student drinking every night of the week, and that is without a doubt an instance of almost criminal neglect.
* This is very similar to the perennial undergrad complaint that Harvard lacks "social spaces." I have never understood what this could possibly mean, because I have never had the slightest problem finding places to meet people on and around campus, and as a grad student, I don't even have access to any of the dorm spaces or dining halls available to the undergrads. But maybe the problem with all the dozens of libraries, cafes, and multipurpose rooms full of overstuffed chairs on campus is that they lack signs proclaiming, "THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE PERMITTED TO SOCIALIZE," and the undergrads are paralyzed without such explicit instructions.
