Dog lovers, if you’re feeling stressed about finals, Dog Days has a treat for you.

Faculty and staff members are bringing their dogs to campus this week. Students in need of anxiety relief or just some doggie kisses are invited to pet, play and snuggle with the cuddly canines.

For 30 minutes before the start of scheduled morning and mid-day finals, 10 precious pups will be on duty at locations across campus.
