Stress Relief

Final exams are nearly upon us. Are you stressed? Are your students?

Here are some smiles for you: therapy dogs soothing stress during finals week at George Mason University. Here’s hoping that some therapy dogs find their way to our campus!

Read all about therapy dogs, university students, and final exams on the national stage. Bonus: a local tie-in.

If dogs aren’t your thing, there’s always Maru, the Japanese cat. Or, you know, the panda cam.

In addition to the joy cute animals bring, biologists suggest that looking at cute animals can improve concentration. Perfect justification for a quick break!
