Student activists at Brown University are complaining of emotional stress and poor grades after months of protesting, and blame the school for insisting that they complete their coursework.

“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes, and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” an undergraduate student going by the pseudonym “David” told The Brown Daily Herald Thursday. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. Counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay.”

"My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now."   

Other students reported similar problems, describing maladies ranging from emotional distraction to panic attacks that they say caused them to skip assignments, miss class, and generally lose focus on keeping their grades up.

  • University

    it's not just for learning anymore.

    Or any learning at all for that matter...
    The beatings will continue until moral improves.
  • Too much activism makes for a very narrow Liberal Zombie.

    They are neglecting their other studies in critical theory, feminism, false history, class warfare and government worship.
    It's a fight to the death, which you will eventually lose...
  • All this fun on student loans, that they think they should not be expected to pay back.
    Homeschool or State Thought Police School, you choose.
  • Did mommy forget to bring them their bottle today?

  • Anyone going to Brown has to be the biggest idiot in the nation.
    Communist, Socialist, Democrat, Republican, at this point, what difference does it make.

    The kind of degenerate garbage attending Brown wouldn't know what to do with a bottle, their minds are so gone.
    What's more plentiful, hydrogen or stupidity?

    The only change you ever get from the goverment is what's in your pocket, and worth less every day.
  • I think I lost 2 IQ points just reading "David's" drool monkey plight.

  • It's confirmed at Brown University, the stupid has landed. repeat, the stupid has landed.

    You got that right!

  • These kids do realize what you are suppose to be doing at a University right?  They treat school like it is a fun park and not a place of learning.  

    Not that it really matters in today's world, as the curriculum is a joke, and the graduates are brain dead losers that can't get a job mopping floors or pumping gas.

  • Another great article from Crazy exemplifying the deterioration of our present culture.  This is why no one wants to hire collage grads, getting a degree in indoctrination won't get you anywhere but the gutter.
