WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - If final exam grades look a little better for Wake Forest University this semester, the improvement can be credited to more rest and less caffeine.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1BHIZPt) the school established a “ZieSta Room” in Reynolds Library as more than 4,700 students took their final exams. The exams ended on Saturday.

Some students approached Associate Dean Susan Smith to create a space where students could take naps between studying. The school said the room is part of Thrive, a campus-wide effort by the university that began in September to help students, faculty and staff to live healthier.

The room is equipped with recliners, natural lighting and eight small lockers where students stored their electronic devices.
