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:
Wednesday, April 25 in the Cave Lounge at NDC, 11:30am-1:00pm
Thursday, April 26 in the Atrium of Roblin Centre, 11:30am-1:00pm
