ASU brings in 'comfort dogs' during finals week

Posted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. -

The end of the semester can be a tough time for many college students. Studying for final exams and graduation concerns can bring a lot of stress -- but not for long.

Comfort dogs were on campus Thursday helping to relieve students' stress.

Students aren't allowed to have animals in the residence halls, so last year, comfort dogs decided to come to them.

Some students say the dogs on campus are a big relief, and it gives them a chance to focus on something other than classes.

"They calm them from my experience. From what I've seen their stress melts away and for a minute they can forget about finals that they're working on or final papers or in our case their honors classes," says Andrea Wells, ASU student.

Other colleges are also getting in on the action. Comfort dogs have become more and more popular on campuses across the nation.
