Marquette University is one of the first to continue to the trend of babying college students who are “suffering” from the election.
“Political stress got you down?” the center said in on Facebook. “Come to our de-stress event!”
Offered to participants were “stress busting activities,” “a gratitude board,” and “self-care strategies.”
Although to be fair the counseling center’s offer was available to all students regardless of political leaning.
“The Marquette University Counseling Center would like to invite students and the campus community to engage in some self-care strategies, decompress, and be in community with one another,” the center added. “Please join them on the AMU 2nd floor lobby on 11/7/18 from 11-2pm. Stress busting activities, a gratitude board, and a space to be in community will be available.”
The notice also said that “for many people, the transition of power and the rapid speed of change may cause stress and anxiety about the political environment and the future of our nation. Symptoms of stress can vary from person to person but often include a combination of emotional (anxiety, depression, worry, tension, irritability) and physical (headaches, insomnia, stomach problems) reactions.”
