Self-Care Celebration 4/29/22

Boogie & Oakley- Therapy Dogs at the Fox Common!

On Friday, April 29th, 2022, Cheyenne Bryan, Graduate Fellow in the Office of Student Activities and Leadership, hosted the first annual Self-Care Celebration in Fox Common- and the Office of Student Life and Well-being wasn’t going to miss it!

Cheyenne had a section blocked off for therapy dogs, Boogie and Oakley to relax and cuddle with students (and they were the stars of the show). Being around therapy dogs helps to improve one’s mental health and boost self-esteem and communication. Thanks Boogie and Oakley for doing that for our students!

University Dining provided a healthy meal of chicken, rice, and sweet potatoes, and Student Activities had “DIY Zen Gardens” for students to take!

Our office had knitting materials, DIY Essential Oil Blends, and Green Tea samples for students, all things that help to induce relaxation and support mental health.

There was peaceful music playing in the background and students were all smiles as they circled through the event. It was so relaxing and fun for the students, staff (and dogs) who attended.

We will definitely be collaborating on this event again in the future.

Thanks so much Cheyenne!
