*Bumped Up From TAM Wire. Posted by dennisl*

The outrage of suggesting that refraining from getting wasted and having proper study habits will help pass the course~!

Via Fox News.

UK’s Cambridge University physical sciences professor came under fire this week from mental health campaigners and students after he suggested undergraduates will have to work hard and abstain from drinking to pass the course.

Eugene Terentjev draw the fury of students and mental health activists after sending out an email last week to first-year natural sciences undergraduates at Cambridge, telling them the course will be difficult and thus they should refrain from drinking and other social activities if they wish to succeed, according to an email leaked to student-run publication Varsity….

The professor’s comments caused an uproar among activists and students, who called his email “extremely damaging” and neither “appropriate nor acceptable”, with one other university vice-chancellor accusing Terentjev of “frightening impressionable undergraduates”, the London Times reported.

A mental health campaign at the university, Student Minds Cambridge, said the message sent by the professor “could be extremely damaging to the mental well-being of the students concerned, and potentially others as well”….

    Wonder how many grades of F are given out at Cambridge. Prof. may be trying to avoid discrepancy of not giving an F when that was the grade earned.

    Wow. A professor who actually cares and about the success of his students by suggesting hard work and sobriety will lead to success as opposed to the professors who are suggesting government and free education is the answer to passing the class. Refreshing! Give this Professor tenure!!!

    Imperial policy is to make students as stupid as possible. They need mobs, not scholars!

    When I’m interested to know more about something I usually reference the online encyclopedia.

    In this case Cambridge University. When you read about its history and all of the incredible brilliant people that have effected, literally, world history, from this University, it’s galling to read about the miscreants, pissants and snowflakes have the chutzpah to complain, moan and groan and gripe about the strict discipline required to master a highly advanced subject matter.
