Restarting a once annual tradition, the Rice Student Association along with Fondren Library sponsored three sessions of end-of-semester de-stressing with therapy dogs.

During the three separate two-hour sessions Dec. 7-9 at Fondren, Rice students in need of a finals period pick-me-up could come by to pet and hang out with the friendly pups from Paws for Therapy, a Houston volunteer organization that shares its trained therapy dogs with those in need of comfort and support across the area.
