Classes Canceled To Allow College Students To ‘Cope’ With Shock Of Trump’s Win

Liberal professors at many universities canceled classes Wednesday to help their students deal with the apparent trauma of the election results.

“Because I know this process has been difficult for many of you (emotionally and mentally), I wanted to let you know that I’m not taking roll in class tomorrow,” a professor at UConn wrote in an email to students.

She told her English students she understood if they needed a “personal day” to deal with Donald Trump being elected president, Fox News reported.

Another professor at Iowa State did the same, canceling class and postponing a quiz until Friday. The message called Hillary Clinton’s defeat a “life-changing event.”

“I think many of you will need some time to cope due to the polarizing nature of the campaign,” the message stated.

Many students have been sharing the messages from professors on social media.

Meanwhile, many liberal students went out to protest the results of the election, declaring that Donald Trump is not their president.

“It feels like we’re cheated somehow,” a protesting UCLA student told the Daily Bruin. “He’s a horrible person that doesn’t deserve this title.”

And Over at Stanford University, students were reportedly invited to programs to help them to cope with the results.

The programs were a response to students and faculty who had expressed “uncertainty, anger and/or fear” about Trump’s victory.
