Texas University ‘Safe Space’ Brings in Therapy Dogs and Coloring Books for Snowflake Students Who JUST CAN’T DEAL


University of North Texas

A university in Texas has thrown in the towel on adulthood.

What should be an institution of learning has become a adult day care center that is bringing in coloring books and therapy dogs for “hugging sessions” to help students deal with life in general.

If this is happening in Texas, we would hate to see what is happening in California.


According to an exclusive report by Campus Reform, The University of North Texas is now offering weekly “healing sessions” with therapy dogs. Snowflakes can also enjoy coloring books and watch episodes of “The Office.” Why that show was chosen, we do not know. But Dwight Schute would not be amused by any of this.

More from Campus Reform.

According to an advertisement for the therapeutic sessions put out by the university’s Counseling and Testing Services Department, students are invited to “join Rockstar the therapy dog for some de-stressing art” every Thursday throughout the semester.

“We provide you with supplies to complete an art project designed to increase self -awareness, compassion, and gratitude,” a description for the session explains. “Come join us for art, or even just for cuddles with Rockstar.”

However, for those who are unable to make it to Thursday’s session, an additional “Dog Breath” workshop will be offered every Tuesday where students can “hug and be hugged by a poodle named Buddy.”

“Learn skills that can be used to relieve stress and manage anxiety while spending time with a loveable pet,” the advertisement states.

Meanwhile, another Tuesday session invites students to “come watch ‘The Office’ with the therapy dogs,” noting that participants will be able to view clips of the popular show while cuddling with dogs “Dakota and Willow,” all while “learning to form healthy relationships and increase coping skills.”
