Therapy Dogs Visit SLS to Relieve the Stress of Final Exams
Finals are always stressful times, especially for law students. Knowing this, the newly formed Savannah Law School Student Bar Association (SBA) came up with a solution: therapy dogs. The SBA has partnered with Therapy Dogs International (TDI), a volunteer organization dedicated to regulating, testing, and registrating of therapy dogs and their volunteer handlers nationwide for the purpose of visiting nursing homes, hospitals, other institutions, and wherever else therapy dogs are needed, to bring stress relief to our campus.
On May 1st, volunteers from the Savannah Chapter of TDI will be visiting our campus at two different times to offer stress relief sessions with their therapy dogs. Both day and evening students will be able to participate and benefit from the event.
The first therapy dog/law student session will be immediately following the day-time Torts final on May 1, from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. The second session will be immediately preceding the night-time Torts final on May 1, from 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. SBA hopes all students will be able to gather so that the dogs and handlers can help ease some of the stress surrounding finals.
