4 Paws puppies for finalsOn Thursday, Dec. 12, K9s at the ‘Ville, a student organization at Cedarville University, will partner with 4 Paws For Ability to bring puppies on campus to help relieve student stress during finals week. This event will be held in the lower level of the Stevens Student Center from noon to 2 p.m.

The last week of the semester can be stressful for students; however, K9s at the ‘Ville hopes to help alleviate this stress. The 4 paws puppies will also benefit from human interaction as they learn how to socialize.

“The purpose of this event is to provide a quick stress relief for students during finals week by bringing in a litter of puppies from 4 Paws for Ability,” said Anna Weber, president of K9s at the ‘Ville.
