Please join us for a fun and furry event during finals week. On Wednesday, December 11, certified therapy dogs will be visiting the library to help students de-stress during the busiest time of the semester. Therapy dogs and their handlers will be on the first floor of Dupré Library from 1:00 – 3:00 pm, so take a quick break from studying and stop by to meet them. It’s the paw-fect way to relax!
