On Friday Dec. 13th, during both lunches, therapy dogs were brought to the library patio for students to pet and relieve their stress. A long line of students gathered around the patio as eager students wanted to spend time with the dogs. StuCo arranged this event right before finals week, in order to alleviate some of the students’ stress and give them something to look forward to. 

“I [needed this stress reliever] because I have a bunch of midterms coming up, so I really did like it,” Jasmine Sureka ‘23 said. “[The dogs] are awesome and they’re so kind and gentle.”
