Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Student Hannah Harper received a little puppy love from these therapy dogs when they were on campus during fall 2014 finals week. Faculty member Jodi Balma brought her therapy dogs as a response to research that showed that interaction with pets decreases the level of cortisol (linked to stress) in people and increases endorphins to make people happy. The final weeks of the semester can be very stressful for students, so Health Services has integrated services to remind students to stay healthy. It was also a chance for Health Services to remind students to enroll for health coverage. (Photo courtesy of Melissa Barbour.)
