Penny, the Counseling Center’s Therapy Dog

Penelope (Penny) joined the Counseling Center in 2014 and has worked her way up to Therapy Dog, bringing smiles and relief from the daily stress of college life, easing homesickness and helping those who miss their own pets back home. As you take a walk across campus, you may see Penny being walked by one of Penny’s Pals. Penny also provides relief during counseling appointments including reducing anxiety, blood pressure, and easing depression. When Penny is not “in session”, you are welcome to stop by the Counseling Center during Penny’s Visiting Hours:
