UNL hosts therapy dogs on campus

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – UNL’s Entomology Department and Big Red Resilience brought dogs to school on Thursday to help students de-stress.

They want to hold the event once a month on both the downtown and east campuses.

And students said this week was a big testing week, so it was a good time to start.

“[Students] really like being able to stop by and pet dogs between their tests and, you know, kind of give them a little bit of a stress reliever,” said Erin Bauer, chair of the wellness committee of the Entomology Department.

The goal is to have the dogs on City Campus every third Thursday of the month and on East Campus every third Friday.
