Students report that they often feel overwhelmed with how much they have do and with the pressures of college life in general. We bring the therapy dogs to campus to provide an easy opportunity to take a purposeful break from the daily stress that they are experiencing. Our goal is to remind students that finding time every day for self-care can have a positive impact on their ability to manage stress and their overall sense of well-being -Karen Flanagan.
