Yes, it’s already that time of the semester -- exam time.
And students will need some well-deserved rest from all the stress.
Just because so much is at stake at the end of the semester, who says that students can’t work hard and play hard?
At UC Berkeley, as part of “Dead week” tradition, student government officers organized an event this Monday with four furry llamas for exam-stressed students on the university’s Memorial Glade, The Mercury News reports. The student government, you might say, stepped up their game this year with #llamas, an unusual choice for what experts call therapy animals. (Last week, they brought puppies.)
But llamas, despite being large, stoic mammals, didn’t stop students from de-stressing. In fact, some reports suggest that there was a record-breaking number of students who came to see the llamas, according to staff at Berkeleyside, a Berkeley-based, local publication.
Students were elated, nonetheless, opting for the strange and unusual.
This week, the student government plans to host a few other events across the campus to help students de-stress. Taking snapchats and selfies with llamas was the first this week. And more fun is expected to come, before exams next week.
It's exam time, but more importantly this time marks the beginning of the long holiday break.
May the odds of acing that exam be ever in every student’s favor!
