CAPS Providing Puppies to Alleviate Students’ Stress

Remember that time that  University Health Services (UHS) and the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) made all of our dreams come true by bringing puppies to Penn State for finals week last semester, and we all rejoiced?

It’s happening again.

That’s right. This Friday, October 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Student Health Center lawn near Bigler Road, CAPS is hosting a de-stressing event in a series called “Show You Care.” At this event, you’ll get to enjoy activities like arts and crafts, hula-hooping, bubble-blowing, and — wait for it — PETTING AND PLAYING WITH SOME ADORABLE FREAKING PUPPIES!

Be sure to take a break between classes to rub the jowls of an adorable pup or two. We can’t promise they’ll all be as beautiful as Moose, the Shiloh Shepherd featured above, who came to visit us last spring for finals week — but we can dream, can’t we?
