Therapy Dogs for Finals in Ellis Library

Yes, it’s that time of the semester again. You’re studying, you’re researching, you’re writing, you’re living on coffee and no sleep…but look, a fluffy puff of pure love and joy! These calm, cheerful, trained therapy dogs are here to give you a break and put a smile on your face 🙂

Come to Ellis Library on the main floor by the North Doors / checkout desk. Tentative schedule:

  • Sunday, May 12 from 6-9pm
  • Monday, May 13 from 6-9pm
  • Tuesday, May 14 from 6-9pm

There will also be therapy dogs in the Engineering Library on Monday and Tuesday from 1-4pm.

Thanks to Ann Gafke’s Teacher’s Pet for coordinating all the dogs and owners who help us de-stress during finals!
