This is something a bunch of us have supported a few times now and it was so much fun!!! Our little dogs really did make a difference and I thoroughly enjoyed the way the dogs helped break the ice with young people we might normally never have a chance to meet.
De-Stress Fest takes place the week before finals. The Student Ambassadors host a couple of events over 3 days with the goal of helping students de-stress. One of the most popular events is Puppy Playtime where students get to play with some furry friends. Many UVic students are living away from home, and a few have mentioned to me that they don't get really homesick until they think of their pets. Come out and share the love!
Sorry the maps above don't show the exact marker. To see where the Cadboro Commons Conference Centre is, you can look at the parking map at: https://www.uvic.ca/home/about/campus-info/maps/gif/handout-map-latest.gif
We can use the paid parking in Lot 5. Let the organizer know when you arrive and they will reimburse your parking fees. This time we are in the Campus View room which is on the second floor.
