Class is Canceled Because a Professor Died Over the Summer

Penn students have a strange day at class

Last week a classroom full of students were watching the clock, hoping that their professor wouldn’t show up so that they could go home. Well, they got their wish when they received an e-mail while waiting in the class informing them that their PSCI 291-301 professor—Dr. Henry Teune—had passed away…in April. Dr. Teune had died at the age of 75 on April 12, but his PSCI class hadn’t been canceled—something the university called “an oversight.” When the Scoop was in school, he was generally pretty pumped when a professor no-showed a lecture, but this scenario is just morbid and sucks the fun out of an afternoon off.
