Pets and People Study Break

Exam stress? Stop by McQuade or the MPR Wed Dec 16 and pet a pooch!

The stress-relieving effects of interacting with friendly animals are well documented.  Take a break from studying and check out the dogs visiting from “Pets and People”.  

This volunteer organization fields human and animal teams who visit hospitals, assisted living centers, and other places to bring a little unconditional love into someone’s day.


The dogs will be on campus on Wednesday, December 16, from 11:00am – 1:00pm in two locations:  McQuade Library first floor and the MPR in the Sak.


Sponsored by Hamel Health and Counseling and the McQuade Library.
