EXCLUSIVE: University Officials Sign Off On Literal Emotional First Aid Kit
An adviser and an assistant professor at the University of Houston showed support for providing students with an emotional first aid kit that would contain a baby blanket and candy among other things.
“The stress of school gets to them. Like a bad grade, a missed class, being late, a microaggression, uhh whatever,” Schindler said to O’Keefe about the emotional distress University of Houston students face.
 
Colleges turn to coloring books to de-stress students
In the age of safe spaces and trigger warnings comes another new trend to the college repertoire: coloring books. This fall, campuses nationwide are offering coloring books to students to help them de-stress.
At American University on Monday, its counseling center provided coloring sheets in honor of Healthy Campus Week, noting on its Facebook page that adult coloring books “can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues.” Conditions cited include obsessive-compulsive, eating, anxiety and depressive disorders, as well as anger management and substance abuse issues.
 
Mizzou Campus Activists and Black Lives Matter Complain About Paris Stealing the Spotlight
Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their “struggles” were being “erased.” Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouri’s campus.
So debased has the language on American campuses become that these incidents, which many observers believe to be hoaxes, just like previous campus scandals celebrated by progressive media, are being referred to as “terrorism” and a “tragedy” by moronic 20-year-olds who have never been told, “No.”

Students add trigger warnings to posts on Pokemon GO, U.S. Constitution, ‘white men’
Gone are the days when trigger warnings were saved for extreme subjects, such as rape, as a heads up to allow those who might have experienced such evil a chance to avoid reliving it.
Nowadays, just about any innocuous subject might prompt the modern college student to throw on a trigger warnings for a variety of reasons, mostly having to do with perceived oppression such as racism, sexism, classism, able-bodyism, heterosexism, and all the other isms.
The practice has been watered down since its beginning, becoming not only meaningless, but also infantilizing.

Calling the University of Nebraska Lincoln a place that “values acceptance,” the institution kicked off the fall semester with its newly installed chancellor essentially telling new students they should not say or do things that might be offensive or cause people to feel disrespected, calling the stance “nonnegotiable.”
“We insist on a culture of respect, and we recognize that words and actions really matter,” Chancellor Ronnie Green said during a speech at the new student convocation on Aug. 19.
‘If you can’t express yourself respectfully, shut up’

Public University’s Bias-Free Language Guide Calls The Word ‘American’ ‘PROBLEMATIC’
The University of New Hampshire has issued a Bias-Free Language Guide which identifies the word “American” as a “problematic” term which should not be used.
Other “problematic” words on the taxpayer-funded school’s lengthy list include “mothering,” “fathering,” “healthy,” “homosexual,” “rich,” “poor” and “senior citizen,” notes Campus Reform.
 
University librarians now trained on how to crack down on microaggressions
Gone are the days when the worst thing you might receive from a librarian is a stern look and a “shush!”
Apparently the dangers of microaggressions lurk even within campus libraries, so much so that the staff from the University of Minnesota libraries requested and received a professional development training on them.
With that, a 36-page “Identifying and Responding to Microaggressions” PowerPoint training was developed and presented in 2014, a training still currently offered online on a University of Minnesota website as a resource for librarians.

WATCH: Protesters hijack conservative student meeting, call them ‘white supremacists’
The Young Americans for Freedom chapter at the University of Kansas had an … interesting meeting Thursday night.
A group of protesters showed up, repeatedly challenging YAF members and calling them names, sometimes screaming at them when they didn’t observe practices like asking speakers which gender pronouns they prefer.
The Young America’s Foundation has some excerpts of the accusations and name-calling, as well as the full 33-minute video. (The video may have originally been shot by a “trans woman of color” – see more below.)
 
Posters put up in California college dorms instruct students ‘How to be a (Better) White Ally’ and claim every white person is racist
The signs spotted at Pomona College in Claremont, California, say every white person has ‘unconsciously learned racism’ and should acknowledge their ‘privilege’.
‘Your unearned advantage must be acknowledged and your racism unlearned,’ the warning reads.
Further, the poster claims that white people should ‘just listen!’ rather than explaining their own perspective.
The group behind the poster also states that white students should ‘apologize if you’ve offended someone’ and insists words such as ‘sassy’, ‘riot’, ‘exotic’ and ‘ghetto’, are ‘racially-coded’.
 
VIDEO: College students taught most U.S. terrorists ‘conservative’ white men
Most acts of terrorism in America are committed by white men who are “religiously motivated and politically conservative,” a psychology professor recently taught his students, adding that “9/11 is basically the only act of foreign-born terrorism that has ever happened in the United States.”
The “Introduction to Psychology” lesson was given by Dr. Ross Avilla, a lecturer at the University of California-Merced, who backed up his argument by telling his class about a white Christian man who shot up the Texas statehouse with an AK-47 – an incident which in fact never took place.

Black girl who attacked white dreadlocks guy can now live on segregated ‘Afro-themed’ floor
School says it’s ‘inclusive’ to segregate
San Francisco State University student Bonita Tindle was captured on video this spring attacking a white student with dreadlocks. She was offended by his cultural appropriation.
She may be able to avoid white hairstyles more easily through a new university initiative to segregate black students on “Afro-themed dorm floors.”
 
Black students blame America for black girl who attacked white guy with dreadlocks
We’d say this is the pot calling the kettle black, but that could be perceived as racist.
The Black Student Union at San Francisco State University is defending Bonita Tindle, the black student who physically attacked the white student Cory Goldstein because he wears dreadlocks, and saying a viral video “misrepresent[s]” their altercation.
 
I’m Black and I’m Horrified That African-American College Students Are Choosing Segregation
In a stunning and deeply saddening move, Cal State Lost Angeles (typo intentional) joins other schools like UConn and Berkeley in imposing the “separate but equal” rules the NAACP and Lerner fought so hard against.
A list of demands that the Black Student Union (BSU) delivered to the school included a “housing space delegated for black students” in hopes of providing “cheaper alternative housing” for black students and a “safe space” for them to congregate. Cal State has acquiesced.
 
America-themed BBQ ‘considered offensive’ at Ramapo

Students distribute ‘Racism Release Form’ at Goucher College: ‘Everybody loves them’
Satirical group also offers ‘Adult Special Achievement’ stickers
Students at Maryland’s Goucher College can save administrators a step if they want to report racism: They can report themselves.
The “Racism Release Form” puts a friendly face on reducing racism, its advocates say. The forms are a big hit at Goucher, where students Sept. 15 were also handing out Apology Declarations, Forgivers Licenses, Joy Permits and Refurbished Report Cards.

Six heroic ways to disrupt campus safe spaces this fall
Dear Conservative, Republican and Libertarian students,
Are you tired of leftist tripe shoved down your throats all year long? Do you want to fight back?
This year, let’s get down to business! Let’s teach these precious snowflakes what a campus is really all about — diversity of thought, freedom of expression and free speech. You know, all the stuff you discover in the real world and our universities claim to be preparing us for.
