The University of Central Lancashire understands that its students get stressed out from time to time, so the Student Union there is offering a new "puppy room" to help them get through those crazy exams, hours of studying and college life in general.
The Students' Union revealed on a Facebook events page that they will host their "first ever puppy room" as part of their Stressed Out Students (SOS) campaign May 7, according to Distractify. They teamed up with the charity Guide Dogs for the event, which will allow students to come cuddle a puppy in the puppy room."The Union would like to reassure students that the welfare of the puppies and safety of students are our top priorities within this project," the statement continued. During the 3-hour event, the puppies will have "regular breaks" and will be with their handlers at all times. The number of students in each room will also be limited depending on the number of puppies available.
To book a session students were asked to make a donation of 1.50 Euros (about $1.70). The idea was so popular that all of the sessions are already booked.
To further their point, the student union also pointed to a 2012 study that showed looking at photos of puppies, kittens and other "cute images" can help improve concentration.
