Therapy Dogs ease student stress before Cedar Crest finals

Wednesday, December 19, 2018 by Susan Bryant sbryant@tnonline.com in Local News

The last week of winter semester classes went to the dogs at Cedar Crest College, Allentown, but, in this case that was not a bad thing.

Lehigh Valley Therapy Dogs were on campus Dec. 6 for Exam De-stress Day.

The dogs are trained by volunteers to promote well-being and healing through comfort and companionship.

As the end of the semester can be a tense time for the college community, the Therapy Dogs were on-hand (or in this case on-paw) to help ease the stress.

The event was sponsored by the Cedar Crest College School of Nursing.
