FOX NEWS - 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.
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.
