Hi Future Badgers,
It’s that time of the year that classes are almost done and there are a few assignments left before exams start. To help deal with this stressful time, Brock University Student Union (BUSU) runs Wellness Week. This is a week that focuses on the health of students by providing events to help with their mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial wellness, as well as just life in general!
My favourite part about Wellness week is the Puppy Room.
PUPPY ROOM? WHAT IS THAT? (I’m sure you are all wondering this).
The Puppy Room is where you get to hang out with the therapy dogs from St. John Ambulance and forget about all your stress and assignments you have to do! A study showed that 86% of people reported a reduced heart rate, blood pressure and stress and anxiety after petting a dog for 20 minutes. This is a perfect excuse to take a break from studying to visit the Puppy Room!
Some of the other events include Aqua Fit and Paddle Boarding, Cardio Pool Party, FREE Breakfast, Colouring and Music, Holiday Photos, Free Massages, Poetry Slam , Art Therapy, and many more!

Best of Luck Future Badgers!
