Several licensed therapy dogs help NDSU students to de-stress

With finals week looming ahead, some NDSU students could use a little stress-relief and man's best friend is here to help. Several licensed therapy dogs spent some time at the campus library Thursday, giving students a break between studying sessions.

With finals week looming ahead, some NDSU students could use a little stress-relief and man's best friend is here to help. Several licensed therapy dogs spent some time at the campus library Thursday, giving students a break between studying sessions.

F-M Obedience School provided the dogs. Students like Katie Guzzi say they have a calming effect.

Katie Guzzi, NDSU Junior said, "It's been a very stressful couple of days, even though it's only dead week. Most of my things have been due during dead week, so this has been the perfect opportunity to come and relax and spend time with dogs that are so calm."

The lobby of the library has become a de-stress area with puzzles and coloring sheets to help break up studying time.
