Animals are easy to love but did you know that animals can be good for your health? According to the National Institutes of Health, interacting with animals can:
reduce stress-related hormones
lower blood pressure
increase feelings of social support
improve heart health
The end-of- semester crunch is stressful! That’s why Thigpen Library invites therapy dogs from the Music City Pet Partners to interact with Vol State students, faculty, and staff during Finals Week. This year, the dogs will be on campus December 3rd & 4th from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the Rochelle Center. Be sure to stop by for some dog therapy!
It’s hard to believe that September is almost over. Let’s look forward to all the fun events Thigpen Library has planned for October.
