I-Pals brought in a certified therapy dog named Reba, who you can meet and play with in room 1013 of Jones Hall

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – It’s finals week for the fall semester at Youngstown State University, so one student organization wanted to help relieve stress for students.

I-Pals, which encourages the connection of all cultures between students, brought in a certified therapy dog named Reba on Monday.

Laurie Wittkugle, administrative assistant of the International Programs Office at YSU and Reba’s owner, says Reba has already brought so many smiles to the students and staff.

“Well, studies show that people’s lives are actually extended if they have a pet of some sort, and a dog is very good to go out and do things with,” she said.

You can meet and play with Reba in room 1013 of Jones Hall on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon and 2-4 p.m.
