To help relieve some stress this semester, our good friends from the UT College of Veterinary Medicine’s H.A.B.I.T. (Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee) program are bringing a therapy dog for a visit.
Research shows the benefits of spending time with an animal – even a short visit has positive effects – and the UTC Library wants to help give you these benefits this semester.
Students, faculty and staff are all invited to meet our furry guest on Thursday October 23 in the Library from 2:00pm – 4:00pm. Drop by to say hello and give your new furry friend a pat on the head.
This certified therapy dog will be accompanied by a trained handler. And if you prefer not to be near the dog for any reason, you can still use the library during this time. The dog will be located in a dedicated section of the first floor of the library, near the Dean’s office, and will not impede access to computers, printers, elevators, restrooms, or vending machines. As well, the 2ndand 3rd floors will be animal-free.
