Perhaps Charlie Brown was right: Maybe happiness really is a warm puppy. That seemed to be the case Monday on Hahn Plaza, when passing students were surprised by some canine stress-relievers.

Pups on campus are nothing new at USC. Their Finals Week visits have become a regular occurrence. And the Office for Wellness and Health Promotion and Be Well USC bring therapy dogs to campus most Thursdays.

Still, there’s no better way to get through a cloudy Monday than with the help of a furry friend.
