Puppies and kittens come to the rescue of stressed students

Every semester, Washburn University puts on a number of events during the lead up to finals to help students de-stress.  One of the most popular and cutest is the arrival of puppies and kittens at the Student Wellness and Recreation Center.  The furry therapists are just looking for hugs and petting and are more than willing to calm anxious students.  The event will take place in the SWRC multi-purpose room.
