Therapy dogs stopped by Drexel University

WEST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- This can be a stressful time of year, especially for college students preparing for exams.

Thursday some of them found a way to ease their minds for a few minutes.

10 therapy dogs stopped by Drexel University.

The students were happy to get on the floor and play with the pups.

Studies have shown that dogs decrease stress in humans and boost levels of oxytocin and lower production of the stress hormone cortisol.
