RICHMOND, VA - In an effort to reduce student stress during final exams, the University of Richmond is hosting two events where dogs will be on campus and ready to play. The first is April 24, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., in the Wilton Center, hosted by the Office of the Chaplaincy; the second, May 2, 12 - 2 p.m., at the School of Law, Moody Plaza (front patio facing parking lot).
The Chaplaincy traditionally hosts a "study break for the soul," where food, games and massages are offered during exam week. Dogs entered the picture last spring when chaplaincy staff brought their own dogs to campus, much to the delight of students. The law school's event will feature therapy dogs from "Caring Canines."
"Students love being with the dogs. I think it reminds students of home, particularly during the stress of exams when many of them haven't been home all semester," said Craig Kocher, university chaplain.
