Students will have the opportunity to pet adorable puppies and other dogs Wednesday as part of the campus health service’s Pet Hug program.
The dogs will be available from noon to 1 p.m. outside Moffitt Library. With the stress of finals escalating each day, we totally understand the need for some puppy cuddles. With AnonCon in full swing, a naked run Tuesday night and now playful puppies on campus, can someone remind us again why dead week is the worst?
Just FYI, the event isn’t completely connected to finals. University Health Services coordinates a Pet Hug event with ARF, Tony LaRussa’s Animal Rescue Foundation, the first Tuesday of every month. According to the UHS website, studies show interaction with companion animals lowers blood pressure, reduces anxiety and otherwise improves one’s physical and mental health.
We’ll provide you updates, but if you need a pet hug right this second, check out the photos from past pet hug events.
