Bark Break

It’s hard not to smile in the presence of a puppy. And since it’s exam period here on campus, counseling center director Ximena Mejia thought dogs would be just the thing to help stressed-out students relax. So with the help of about six furry friends from an organization called Therapy Dogs of Vermont, Mejia and others gave a non-stop string of students an excuse to take a break this week in Coltrane Lounge. Much laughter ensued—with plenty of wet kisses shared—before the two-legged creatures slumped back to the library.
