NOTRE DAME, Ind. Notre Dame students got to have a few minutes away from the books and spend time with some furry friends on Thursday.

The student government and the St. Joseph County Humane Society helped students relieve some stress by having puppies on campus at the Knights of Columbus building.

The event was the fourth time they've done it.

Organizers try to do it every semester during midterms and finals, and say it's something all college students need.

“Notre Dame students are or college students in general are deprived of dogs,” said ND student Lizzie Helpling.“And there's nothing better for a stressed out college student then to pet some adorable adoptable dogs.”

All the dogs brought in for the event are up for adoption.
