Therapy Dogs On Campus! April 24th and 25th

April 26, 2017 • Written by

The end of term can be a very stressful period, with students experiencing added pressure to complete projects and perform well on exams. In order to help students cope with this stress, we’re welcoming the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program to campus. Students will be encouraged to sit with, feel, touch and pet a trained dog, enjoying the relaxing effect this can have on their mind, body, and emotions.

According to St. John Ambulance, the nation-wide program boasts 3,354 volunteer teams who assisted more than 120,000 clients throughout 2015. Therapy dog teams visit hospitals, retirement residences, care facilities, schools and universities.

Therapy dogs have been on campus in the past, and many students have genuinely enjoyed the visits.

Please join us at the following times/locations:

Monday, April 24 in the Cave Lounge at NDC, 11:30am-1:00pm

Tuesday, April 25 in the Atrium of Roblin Centre, 11:30am-1:00pm

For more information, please contact Breanna Sawatzky at 204-632-2061 or blsawatzky@rrc.ca

Time for a Tune Up

April 14, 2017 • Written by

As we move into April we start to think of spring, being outside and everything we are going to do.  Does our body agree with our intentions?  We never hesitate to spend on vehicle maintenance, from new brakes to oil changes to tunes ups we invest money in our cars oil-changeevery day, month and year. Yet when we talk about investing in the most important vehicle we own, our body, we hesitate. Gym memberships are a luxury, and forget about personal training sessions. Our bodies carry us through life all day – every day. How we go through life in our body vehicle depends on how well we maintain it. Don’t hesitate – invest in your body. Read More →
