Graduation is an exciting time in a student’s academic career. It can also be a stressful and challenging time. Vandal Health Education in addition to other services and programs, provides opportunities for students to take time for their own health and wellness and to destress during this particularly stressful time.
One of students’ favorite activities is when therapy dogs come to campus. Vandal Health Education partners with Palouse Paws throughout the school year and opens a room in the Idaho Commons for students to come pet and hang out with trained therapy animals – mostly dogs, but sometimes a cat, too. Therapy animals will be on campus twice during the month of April. Other Vandal Health Education wellness events include a Wellbeing Wednesday Workshops, gatekeeper trainings to help a friend in distress, free cooking classes and more; view complete schedule and descriptions online.
