Photo Evidence: Therapy Dogs Come to Zelnick

Puppies on Fountain, puppies on Vine, puppies on Warren, puppies on Pine. Puppies on Hodgekiss, puppies on Hodgekiss, puppies at the corner of Wyllys and High. Puppies with us and puppies with them, puppies at Zelnick at 4 p.m.

Okay, they weren’t technically all puppies, but the parody doesn’t work so well otherwise. Bringing the best new event to Reading Week since chronic lung damage, Holly Everett ’15 and the rest of Sign and Writing Houses seemed to think student stress levels warranted bringing “6 lovely, cuddly dogs” to campus for pet therapy. The dogs hailed from Tails of Joy,  a nonprofit affiliate group of Intermountain Therapy Animals based in Manchester, Connecticut, and they chilled in Zelnick for two hours on Saturday, greeting gushing Wesleyan students and generally acting like adorable, meticulously trained therapy dogs.  A few images from the historic interspecies mingle appear below.

“Rando” from the Shoutbox writes in:

primal scream photos ?

Sure, I thought you’d never ask. Below: a few choice snapshots from Wesleyan’s biannual Primal Scream, which hit the Olin steps at midnight on Monday. Send your own pics to staff(at)wesleying(dot)org. Above: a brief video clip from the start of the scream. Also worth noting: click through to Wesleying’s YouTube channel to find a few brief video clips from Indoor Spring Fling 2012. Don’t be surprised if they’re dark and poorly lit, much like finals week.
