The Worst Thing To Happen To A Class Ever

100054

How annoying is it when you drag yourself out of bed to class and the professor isn't there? You're all like, what the hell is this guy doing, worst class ever,  etc... and then you find out, via an email sent while you're waiting in class, that the professor isn't there because he died. And the department forgot to tell you.

That's what happened in PSCI-291 last week. After the jump, read the awkward email explaining the "oversight" of not telling a class that the professor had passed away over the summer.

PSCI 291-301 is canceled. We are so sorry for this last minute cancellation. With Dr. Henry Teune's passing, this course should have been cancelled over the summer and was an oversight.

If you have the chance, be sure to check out the DP's coverage of the passing of Dr. Henry Teune, a well-loved member of the political science community.
