Western University’s Student Council (the USC), brought in a petting zoo to the University Community Centre today as part of a series of annual campaigns to de-stress students during exam time. Students, Professors, and all were welcome. The attraction included sheep, goats, alpacas, chickens, and more.
Western University holds events like these during peak study period (such as the exam period) to help students take a break from their stressors. The University has also put on similar mental health-related events such as a complimentary breakfast and more.
