Well, it’s that time of year. Stomachs in knots, heads pounding, biting of nails. That stressful, anxiety-ridden period full of late nights, giant coffees and panic in general. I’m not talking about the holidays, this is something entirely different…(cue the scary music)…it’s the dreaded end of semester exams (and now the screams). Actually, since I attended design school rather than traditional college, it would instead be…the dreaded end of semester critiques…the horrors!
It looks like at least one school has a great plan in place this week to help students cope: dogs on campus to provide a stress-relieving break, of course. Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia has arranged a doggy lineup that includes the following cast of characters: a Labradoodle, a Sheltie, a Golden Retriever, a Papillon, a St. Bernard and a Dalmatian, courtesy of the Therapeutic Paws for Canada program. Very clever idea! They’re helping to make them smarter, too!
This is genius!!!!
Yes it is! And I can think of a few offices that should give it a try… :-)
What a fabby idea!
It certainly is fabby! Their Facebook page has lots of comments from envious students of other colleges, maybe it will catch on for the spring.
What a great idea! I love it!
It would be so nice to see all of their smiling faces as a break from studying!
It would be! I’ll keep checking their Facebook page this week and see if they post some of those smiling faces.
How cute!! This reminds me of the cat cafes around here for people who can’t have pets in their apartments. You can visit, grab a coffee, and play with all of the cats. I’m more of a dog person myself, but what a great way to take a break :)
such a cute idea!!
