Stroking Away Stress

November 6, 2015

With exam time approaching, it’s a little stressful at GA-PCOM. To provide a break from the rigors of studying, two loving canines named Anastasia and Tigger recently visited campus to spend time with our students. Thanks, CAREing Paws! In addition, arts and crafts tables were set up so others could paint away their worries. It’s amazing how spending time with “man’s best friend,” and creating beauty with your hands provides much-needed relief.

GA-PCOM recognizes how important it is for students to take care of themselves during busy and stressful times of the year, so we offered students a little relief from the rigors of studying with some pet and art therapy!
