Kittens from Pet Refuge to Help Bethel Students Make it through Finals Week

Lissa Diaz

The Bethel College Center for Academic Success is helping students relieve some stress during finals week by providing a variety of activities, including having some “kitten therapy” courtesy of Pet Refuge. Other activities include shoulder massages, coloring, journaling, a bubble wrap wall and free popcorn.

Kennedy said they are grateful to Pet Refuge for bringing the kittens to campus, which has been a hit in previous years.

“Pet Refuge is very gracious to do this again for us. Students, faculty and staff appreciate the chance to lower their stress level by interacting with the kittens and we hope the animals benefit from getting a little extra affection,” she says.

The kittens will be on campus Tuesday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the first floor of the Miller-Moore Academic Center. Most other activities will take place throughout April 29-May 2 in the Learning Commons, located in the basement of the Miller-Moore Academic Center.
