“Talk with Tivo” is a new Wellness Center initiative being piloted in Fall, 2012. Wellness Center counselors will spend an hour at various key campus locations to provide students with an opportunity to interact with our licensed therapy dog, Tivo, who is a five-year old black Labrador retriever. The hope is not only that time with Tivo will provide welcome pleasure and stress relief for students, but that students will also have the opportunity to interact with our counselors in a more informal context.
Beginning this week, Tivo will be around on Thursday mornings from 10 to 11 am on the first floor of the Information Commons together with a human therapist , Dianna Stencel. For more information about Tivo, including his favorite activities, read his Wellness Center staff bio.
