University Of Texas Builds A ‘Therapy Wall’ For Students Grieving Trump Won The Election
The student government of the University of Texas at Austin created a “Therapy Wall” at the Student Activity Center Wednesday for those upset about the election of Donald Trump. The wall consists of sticky notes from students expressing grief about the election of the New York billionaire.

According to the College Fix, however, most of the notes consists of profanity, yet the administration has no plans to take “any of them down.” Some notes said: “Scared but Determined” and “Fuck Trump.” A series of notes stated, “A White Nationalist Anti-Semite Is In Charge of The White House,” while another note simply said, “Anti-Semite.”
The creation of the wall happened in the wake of other post-election campus instances of student coddling offered by universities. These include a “Cry In” at Cornell, and puppies and coloring books at the University of Pennsylvania, where exams that were delayed or made optional.
