A New Way For College Students to Relieve Stress


I worked on various college campuses for over ten years and there were always programs available to students to help them relieve stress during finals week. I thought I had seen it all.  Midnight breakfast served by faculty and staff, massages, yoga classes, junk food galore in the study lounges of the residence halls, but Chapman University has a found a new way to help their students forget about all the stress of finals. The LA Times reported that a student group has arranged for puppies to be available to students outside of the library during “cram week”.
I have to say, I love this idea!  One of the biggest complaints I used to hear from students was how much they missed their dogs.  I wonder who will get worn out first, the students or the puppies???
