CSN Libraries Go to the Dogs
Therapy dogs will visit campus to help students de-stress as final exams approach
LAS VEGAS, March 16, 2015 – The College of Southern Nevada’s library staff knows that students can get dog-tired as the final exams approach, so they’re inviting students to take a quick break to de-stress.
A group of therapy dogs will visit each of CSN’s three campus libraries throughout the month of April. Students often gather at the library as they work on research papers and group projects, and prepare for upcoming final exams. It can be a stressful time for them.
“A short break of ten or twenty minutes in a stress-free, fun environment can make a big difference,” said Beth Schuck, CSN’s Library Services director.
The therapy dogs are being provided by Love Dog Adventures, a non-profit, all-volunteer animal assisted therapy program.
Schuck said CSN’s libraries are designed to create a welcoming environment for students, and the therapy dogs program is part of that.
The media are invited to attend the event.
