    The University of California-Davis offers a “FREE power nap class” where “trained instructors” teach students strategies to help them avoid falling asleep in class.

    The class is offered thrice-weekly throughout the school year at 25 locations, depicted on an online map, where students can take their power nap in and on everything—ranging from outdoor hammocks to yoga mats in a dance studio.

    “Yes, it is exactly what you think it is! Have you ever wanted to take a nap, but were afraid of sleeping through a class or midterm?” the course description reads. “Well, come to one of our guided power nap classes, where that will not need to be a worry for you.”

    For the first five minutes, “trained instructors” lead students by settling them in and calming them down, followed by a 20-minute power nap that ends with a “gentle wake-up call.”
    I wonder if the students are graded ?

    um, we used to do that in kindergarten. It was called "nap time"

    Now you have to have trained instructors teaching college students the same thing that was instinctual as a youngster?

    Power naps? Hey, I'm self taught in that subject. Straight A's too. Does that mean I can get my degree from UC Davis?

    I have family who attended UCD, including a couple who later in life became profs there. This is to me.
