Rocky Mountain College invites furry friends through their doors for "Ruff Relief."
The therapy dogs are there to help students alleviate the stress of college exams as they cram for finals. After international student and Colombia native Maria Isabel Bonilla finished her second final exam, she rushed over to the student center to seek out Bandit the border collie.
"There's something about animals that is just so soothing, its so relaxing, you know you don't need words to communicate. You just pet them you just sit there and pet them and its reviving you could say," says Bonilla.
The dogs will next head over to the freshmen dormitories to "ruff it out" with some more students from 6 to 8 PM.
