Pet Therapy in College

I found this article very interesting because it discusses something that can relate to most of us. If you lived on campus for your college career, you know the feeling of living away from home for the first time and how scary this can be. I personally became very homesick my first semester away from home and the main thing I missed was my family, including my dog. This article talks about how pet therapy can really help students get used to being away from home their first year of college. I feel like I would have really benefited from a pet therapy program and it would have taken so much of my stress away. Now being a senior and getting ready to graduate, I still miss my dog and I feel like if there was more opportunity to spend time with animals, my stress level would definitely decrease.
