WJON — Furry friends are helping St. Cloud State University students handle their stress as finals grow near.
St. Cloud State’s Healthy Huskies club in partnership with the Tri-County Humane Society, Central MN Therapy Animal Association, the Mass Communications Department and the Counseling and Psychological Services Center are once again hosting the De-Stress with Pets events this week.
“The event actually really targets students that have pets but don’t have them on campus.”
John Atoyebi is a graduate student at St. Cloud State and also one of the organizers for the De-Stress events. The first of the two events was held on Tuesday, De-Stress with Kittens. The second will be Thursday, it will feature dogs. Atoyebi says even though finals aren’t happening quite yet, students are still overwhelmed with work.
