For students stressed by the pressure of upcoming final exams, a therapy dog might be just the thing. Therapy dogs from Love on 4 Paws animal assisted therapy were on duty Tuesday afternoon on the patio of the USC Engemann Student Health Center for anyone needing the love of a canine friend.

Inside, the center’s Trojan Conference Room became a relaxation zone with free massages offered.

Engemann will host a second round of free massages and dog-time from 1-7 p.m. May 6.
