‘Puppy Room’ at College Used to Releive Stress
Here’s a new and neat idea to help relieve college students from the stress of taking final exams, a ‘puppy room.’ Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, created a ‘puppy room’ for their students to take a peaceful break and get away from the pressure of exams. The idea is to help students destress with a playful puppy while melting away the stress of their final exams. More than 300 students lined up and waited up to 45 minutes for a chance to pet one of the dogs. The dogs in the room are usually fully grown but it’s still referred to as the ‘puppy room’ and students are pleased.
Jennie Evamy-Hill, a student at Dalhousie University, says she is really happy and very excited to have a companion to help her calm down and thinks it will be helpful to a lot of students. The idea of a ‘puppy room’ has spread quickly and other schools are thinking of opening a room as well.
