The Student Government Association invited students to de-stress before finals with their “Exam Cram; Pet the Stress Away” event by offering tutoring services with a side of puppies! Held April 30-May 1 on the New Bern campus lawn, the Colonial Capital Humane Society set up shop with litters of puppies and several grown dogs that were all up for adoption. Students, Staff, and Faculty flocked at the opportunity to “Pet the Stress Away,” and it was a scene of absolute joy.
Craven Community College Campus Life Officer and SGA Adviser, Emily Stewart, put the success of the event into numbers, stating that over 160 students participated, 10 adoption applications were filed, one official adoption has been processed, and over 30 students have signed up to volunteer with Colonial Capital Humane Society.
Concurrently, inside our Student Center Naumann Community Room, our TRiO and Academic Skills Center tutors, along with some relaxing music and a snack spread, were hard at work helping students with their final push to prepare for finals and finish their projects.
