Sadly There Will Be No Exam Delay For Traumatized Students at Oberlin College

Last week students at Columbia Law School, Harvard, UC Berkeley and Georgetown were excused from finals due to the trauma they experienced reading about the Michael Brown and Eric Garner grand jury decisions.

But at least one liberal institution will have none of it.

Reason reported

Last week, [Robby Soave] wrote [at Reason’s “Hit & Run” blog] about how “students are so coddled by the feelings-protection regime at university campuses that they now believe disheartening national news developments—such as the grand jury decisions in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases—entitle them to final exam extensions.”

Columbia Law School delayed final exams for students who felt unable to take them in the wake these developments. Students at Harvard and Georgetown began demanding their universities follow suit.

One might think that Oberlin College, known for it’s ultra-crunchy reputation, would be all about this. At least one professor at Oberlin, however, is having none of it.
