HAWKS love Therapy Dogs!

Every semester, we bring therapy dogs on campus to help freshmen/first year students to deal with home sickness, to promote stress management, and provide a comfortable setting in which students can have a chance to meet and bonds with their peers. The dogs are brought in by their owners again at the end of every semester right before finals at our Stress Relief Fairs.
