Troy’s Animal Rescue Project brought animals from their shelter for students to spend time with and have a little downtime for themselves.
“Students are under a lot of pressure taking their tests,” says TARP President Tiffany Howington. “Just giving them an outlet to kind of come and enjoy for just a little while will help them tremendously with test taking and with studying and just help them destress in general.”
Animals are known for providing therapy for people dealing with a variety of conditions including stress.
Finals can be a time that potentially provokes mental exhaustion and with the semester coming to a close students were able to stop by in between classes to clear their mind.
“Honestly this means a lot,” says TROY Student Cameron Blackwell. “The semester has been very stressful and with finals coming up everybody’s a little stressed. We want to get all studying in but it feels nice to be able to take a break and see such cute little babies out here.”
