Bring Stress-Relieving Puppies to IU

This petition had 273 supporters


College is a stressful time with all the exams, papers, and projects to do in addition to having to struggle balancing all other commitments college entails. To combat this problem, many colleges and universities around the United States use pet therapy, especially during exam weeks, to help relieve students of their stress. Indiana University is one of the only higher education institutions that does not offer stress relieving puppies as a resource to its students. According to a CNN article, "Scientific studies do show that canine interaction increases a human's level of oxytocin, a hormone that reduces anxiety and blood pressure." Please help us bring a reduction in stress and an increase in smiles to IU; IU needs puppies.
