The week before finals is here. This is probably the most stressful week of any semester, ask any student. Parkside has joined many other universities and started a therapy dog program. Three shifts of doggies will be here through Friday. Each dog has gone through a certification program allowing them to hold the title of a therapy dog. Professor Dr. Joy Wolf, volunteered both of her dogs along with Dr. Catherine Mossman. These owners will tell you that they visit nursing homes often, but are excited to see students. Next time you head into to the library to focus and study, make a quick stop and say hi to the dogs and owners. There are posted times to visit right inside the library.
