Dogs Visit Law School, Nov 28th-29th

Lower your blood pressure! Reduce stress! Give your brain a study break!

We know that preparing for exams can be very stressful so the Westminster Law Library and the Office of Student Affairs are sponsoring a PAWS to RELAX program to bring several therapy dogs to the SCOL building for study breaks. The program is being offered on Monday, November 28 and Tuesday, November 29 from noon-6pm in room 145.

Therapy dog teams from the American Humane Association will rotate throughout the day, but each two-hour time block will include 2-4 dogs available for drop in visits. NO appointments necessary. These dog and handler teams have all undergone training and are used to interacting with adults and kids in hospitals, nursing homes, schools and libraries.

Big dogs, small dogs, we have them all. So stop by for a short study break and say hi!

Thanks to everyone who dropped by to visit a therapy dog on Monday or Tuesday. We hope that you enjoyed your study break and it helped ease the stress a little. We had about 110 people on Monday and 152 people on Tuesday participate in the event, so perhaps we can try it again during spring semester.

Good Luck on Finals!
