Clearly the solution is to emphasize LAN parties and D&D. And de-emphasize doing homework and attending exams.

No point to stress if you cheat!
It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but it doesn't take any to just sit there with a dumb look on your face.

The obvious solution is to expel all the creative writing majors. We can end the scourge of whiny editorials!

Maybe there need to be more outlets for stress... How about a better female:male ratio? Or maybe they need a column in the Tartan like this.

As I recall, they tried that with the CS class the year after us. I think they got close to 1:1. And some huge fraction of that 15-211 class was caught cheating. So probably not a net reduction in campus stress.
