Let's experience Dog Therapy Day every month at UCSB to help students cope with the anxieties of school!

Dog Therapy Day is a favorite event among UCSB. With enduring the stress of finals and dead week, the Health and Wellness Center hosts this fur filled gathering roughly only at the end of every quarter for the Isla Vista community to relax and take a little break.

Numerous studies show that therapy animals can decrease stress levels and increase a more positive mood. And, with a fast-paced school year through experiencing the quarter system, it can seem to students that the stress and anxiety of assignments and exams are never-ending. 

Though the Health and Wellness Center has put on this event every quarter or so, I believe hosting this event even more frequently would be great to experience. For many students, like myself, we have pets at home that we had to leave behind when adventuring off here and wish after a long day we can go to them and embrace them. 

This sort of therapy is an inexpensive way to provide social and emotional support for students. Therefore, Dog Therapy Day hosted every month could foster an even more positive and fulfilling environment for students that may fill overwhelmed and need comfort and happiness from a beloved doggo. 

Consider signing this petition if you would love for these dogs to visit our campus more often to help increase our happiness and energy!
