Continuing the tradition of hallowed institutions of higher learning coddling students as the barbs of other points of view threaten their very existence, Marquette University’s counseling center advertised a safe space for students to "de-stress" from the ravages of the 2018 midterm elections.
"Political stress got you down?" the center said in a Facebook notice. "Come to our de-stress event!"
Among the perks were “stress busting activities,” “a gratitude board," and "self-care strategies."
To the counseling center's credit, the offer appeared to be extended to all students no matter where they fell on the "political spectrum."
"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."
