Play-Doh, Coloring and Legos. Not Kindergarten. Law School

You don’t expect young adults who are attending the University of Michigan Law School to cope with the election of Donald J. Trump without Play-Doh, do you?


From The College Fix:

Like many other universities this week, the University of Michigan Law School scheduled an event designed to help students recover from the trauma of Republican Donald Trump’s election victory.

Unlike other schools, UMich Law was apparently so embarrassed when the Nov. 14 event made the news that it deleted the event listing.

Total Frat Move reported Thursday on the event, titled “Post-election Self-care with Food and Play,” hosted by the law school’s “embedded psychologist” Reena Sheth. Here’s the description:

Join us for delicious and comforting food with opportunity to experience some stress-busting, self-care activities such as coloring sheets, play dough, positive card-making, Legos, and bubbles with your fellow law students.

Writer Dillon Cheverere said the event does not appear to be “a joke”:

I want it to be a joke so badly, but it is not a joke. It’s real. Students have the chance to “post-election self-care” by decompressing and enjoying snacks and playing with toys designed for toddlers.

Apparently the school got mercilessly mocked for this, because as of Friday afternoon, the event listing has been scrubbed from the law school’s events page. It’s still cached by Google, though. The cache timestamp is Thursday just before noon.

Earlier today, I asked the following question on my social network sites: which nickname do you think would be best for the millennials? Generation Clueless, The Coddled Generation, The Crybaby Generation, or The Whiny Generation?  Which would you choose, or would you prefer to suggest your own? Please let me know in the comments.
