To help reduce students' stress about end of the semester projects and final exams, therapy dogs will return to the College of Lake County over the next few weeks.
Last fall, CLC librarians arranged for several therapy dogs to visit the library. The program was so popular with students and staff that it was expanded this spring and will include visits by 13 dogs from Therapy Dogs International.
"At a time during the semester when students are stressed, the dogs bring many smiles and eased tensions," said librarian Michelle Carter.
A variety of breeds, including golden retrievers, Labradors, border collies, Tibetan terriers, Chesapeake Bay retrievers, Aussie shepherds, dachshunds, Kerry Blue terriers and a coonhound mix, will visit the A and B Courts, the Library Reference Desk and the Office for Students with Disabilities on the Grayslake campus with their owners on May 5, 8 and 13. "Dog Gone Stress" is being sponsored by the CLC Library, the Counseling office and the Office for Students with Disabilities.
