Is the thought of midterm grades beginning to bum your student out?Is the cold Ohio weather keeping your student cooped up? Consider encouraging him/ or her seek out the Dogs on Campus program!
What started as research on the relationship between dog and owner, turned into one of the country's first therapy programs more than a decade ago. Today, the
Dogs on Campus Pet Therapy Program®
at Kent State University serves as a model to bring certified therapy dogs to stressed out college students.
This program is intended to uplift the spirits of college students who miss their pets, are stressed, homesick, are in crisis, or just want a visit. If your student would be interested in getting a visit from one of these dogs, only RA's or organizations/departments at any KSU campus can request a visit on the website. There is no restriction on the reason for a dog to visit, but they do not visit students on an individual basis!
The schedule for when these dogs will be available on campus is listed
