CSN Offers Dog-Tired Students a Break

Love Dog Adventures’ therapy dogs make a return to campus as final exams approach

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 21, 2015 – No one understands better than the College of Southern Nevada’s library staff how students can get dog-tired as the semester winds down and final exams loom, so they’re inviting students to take a stress break.

A group of therapy dogs from Love Dog Adventures will visit all three CSN campuses in November to help the students relax.

“A short break where students don’t have to think about research papers or final exams can make a big difference,” said Beth Schuck, CSN’s Library Services director.

Love Dog Adventures, a non-profit, all-volunteer animal assisted therapy program, has visited CSN’s libraries in recent years, and the feedback from students has been overwhelmingly positive. Schuck said CSN’s libraries try to focus on creating a welcoming environment for students, and the therapy dogs program is part of that.

Students are able to hold and pet the dogs in lounge areas of the libraries. The media are invited to attend.
