Paws for stress relief

Stu­dents swarmed Cen­ten­nial Common on Friday to make some new furry friends during Paws for Stress Relief, an event that was part of the Mental Health Aware­ness Week spon­sored in part by the stu­dent group Active Minds and Uni­ver­sity Health and Coun­seling Ser­vices. The dogs are cer­ti­fied mem­bers of Therapy Dogs International.
