Take a break from the stress of finals and projects and the hectic hubbub of the nearing holidays, and pause — or, rather — Paws for Coffee, 10:30 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Nov. 30, in the lobby of the James & Abigail Campbell Library at the University of Hawai‘i–West O‘ahu.
After nearly three years, the popular event returns and welcomes students, faculty, and staff, and the general public, to de-stress and enjoy a cup of coffee while spending time with therapy dogs from the Alliance for Therapy Dogs – Hawai‘i Chapter. The last time Paws for Coffee was held at the library was on Dec. 4, 2019.
“Petting a dog has been shown to soothe humans and reduce blood pressure in high-stress situations, like final exams,” said Kawena Komeiji, Hawaiian Pacific Resources Librarian at the James & Abigail Campbell Library. “Plus, there are very few problems in the world that some snacks, coffee, and dogs can’t fix!”
The event is presented by the library and Student Activity Fee Board at UH West O‘ahu. For more information, call 808-689-2700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
