We all remember the stress and hustle of starting a new class or prepping for an exam. Well, the Rochester Institute of Technology has found a way for students to alleviate stress.

Every month RIT brings therapy dogs to the campus. On Wednesday, three dog handlers brought their dogs to the library. Some students had a chance to pet the animals in between classes.

Students say petting a dog once a month can be a huge stress reliever. 

"It helps the students destress especially from all the hard classes that a lot of us are taking. Even during finals time, it's really helpful for all of us. It's just a great thing that RIT has here," said Matthew Rich, an RIT student.

Some of the students who came to see the therapy dogs for the first time Wednesday say they plan to come back next month when the dogs return.
