Students Show Up in Masses for Therapy Dogs

HUNTER COLLEGE–Five little pups were assigned one big task: help students stop stressing out during finals.

The line to see the therapy dogs inside the Thomas Hunter building last Wednesday wrapped around the hot, stuffy overcrowded first-floor hallway. Some were fanning themselves with papers to cool down, and others, including Marla Herrand and Xaona Sanchez decided to leave. But on their way out, they spotted 10-year-old toy poodle Melodie through the door. Immediately, they spun on their heels and found their places back in the crowd. They returned smiling, “Never mind we’re staying.”
