San Diego State University on Tuesday hosted a “Healing Circle” to help students process their confusion, anger and fear over Donald Trump’s election and develop ways to stand against “injustice,” according to organizers.
The circle drew roughly 20 participants, a student who attended the session told The College Fix. Students sat at tables facing each other as facilitators talked them through the fact that they needed to come to grips with the election results, similar to the stages of grief.
Marketed as an event for “moving forward together,” students attending the event would learn about the “mental health and community-based resources” available to them following the election.
While the circle only drew a handful of students, the day after Election Day, hundreds of SDSU students took to the quad to protest Trump’s victory.
As distraught students across the country have denied recognizing Trump as the next president, SDSU has not been the only institution to offer community discussions and safe spaces.
The University of Michigan-Flint, Virginia Tech, Columbia University, Barnard College, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Iowa State, UC Santa Cruz, University of Pennsylvania, Rice University, UT-Austin, George Mason and many others have offered similar support to grieving students.

What are these whiny babies [aka fragile little snowflakes] going to do when, in the course of their lives, actual personal tragedy and grief strike them? Very, very few who walk this earth manage to escape devastating personal grief.
Furthermore, “healing circles” don't accomplish anything other than feeding a victimology mindset.
These young people need to get a job instead of taking up space at a university. They are simply too immature to be attending an institution of higher learning. They need to grow up before embarking on what is touted to be “higher education.”
