DOGS ON CAMPUS


 

THE IDEA

Students wanted the Students' Union to keep on running its campaign which includes dogs on campus for stress relief.

 

ACTION

  • The Welfare Officer is looking to run a campaign called Look After Your Mate which will include dogs on campus.

 

UPDATE

NOVEMBER 5TH

  • The Welfare Officer's campaign, Look After Your Mate, was successful.  The Look After Your Mate workshop had a significant impact across all campuses and received positive feedback from a variety of students. There were six Pet-a-Pooch sessions over the two weeks, ensuring that each campus had at least one visit. The dogs drew in around fifty students per session and many of them said it helped with their homesickness and allowed them to take time off from assessments. Alongside the Pet-a-Pooch sessions, the LAYM campaign successfully ran free coffee mornings and ‘notes of positivity’ across all campuses. Each event signposted students to the Look After Your Mate workshops run by the Wellbeing Department, with fourteen students attending in Treforest.
  • The Welfare Officer is looking to run more Pet-A-Pooch sessions next year.
