Schools Offer Counseling to Help Students Process Trump Win

  • Virginia Tech, Georgetown University, and the University of Massachusetts, Boston are all among the many schools nationwide that are offering counseling services to students triggered by Trump’s election as president.
  • At UMass, students will even have the chance to let “Doggo, the therapy dog” soothe their troubles away.

Virginia Tech will be offering counseling to its students who are “waking up with fear, anxiety, concern, questions, and confusion” over the election of Donald Trump.

In an email to “students, colleagues, [and] friends,” VT’s director of intercultural engagement center, Tricia Smith, writes that she wants all members of the school community “to hear clearly that you are loved.”
