VMI ‘Stress Busters’ offers cadets coloring books to relax
Cadets at Virginia Military Institute are being offered coloring books to deal with the stress of becoming citizen-soldiers.
The “Stress Busters” program is raising eyebrows among alumni at the state-run military school in Lexington.
VMI’s website notified visitors that the 2016-2017 academic year would merge cadet government under the Cadet Equity Association’s (CEA) Training and Education branch.
CEA educators offer “activities such as yoga, therapy dogs, coloring book stations, card/game stations, and grab-and-go snacks” for a “Stress Busters” held on Reading Day, according to a screenshot of the website by The Washington Free Beacon.
