Enjoy the comforts of 4-legged furry companions at the Big Red Pawp-Up events on Sept 15 & 16, 2022.

We're now three weeks into the semester and you're possibly still settling in and finding your footing. It's a common stage for most Huskers, so you're not alone.

Soon the first set of exams and projects will be here. To prepare for this upcoming period, give attention to your own self-care and personal well-being. Here are seven on-campus activities that will help you relax and re-focus your energy.

    Big Red Pawp-Ups

    Two chances:

    Pet a dog and de-stress! Research studies have shown that exposure to therapy dogs on college campuses reduces stress and anxiety for students.

    For two hours each on the City and East Campuses, students, staff and faculty can enjoy the casual and happy company of a variety of furry 4-legged companions from Uplifting Paws Therapy Dogs.

    Unable to attend? This is a new monthly activity at UNL, so you can look forward to catching the dogs again when they return to campus in October and each month after.
