Stress-Relieving Dogs Once Again Appear in Libraries as Finals Approach

  1. Christopher C Charles

    It’s that time of the year again. As students gear up for final exams, libraries and other campus institutions are bringing in therapy dogs to help students cope with mounting stresses. Past success stories appear to have encouraged an even greater number of other universities to give such programs a try this year. Just a few of the schools providing therapy animals programs include:

    The University of Arkansas is particularly noteworthy as it is providing not only therapy dogs for students, but a therapy horse as well.

    Is your institution currently providing therapy animals for students or staff? If so, is the animal’s presence a seasonal phenomenon or a year-long occurrence? How has it been received?
