FREMONT - Certified therapy dogs visited Terra State Community College to relieve stress during finals week.
All of the dogs, and their handlers, are certified by Therapy Dogs International, which permits teams to visit hospitals, nursing homes, hospice, and now Terra State.
Don Stull, ElderCollege coordinator at Terra State, organized the dogs' visits, knowing that finals week is a stressful time for not only the student body, but also for the staff and faculty.
"In my world, we call this a petting coma for the dogs," Stull said.
