AUSTIN -- Final exams in college are a very stressful time. That's why St. Edward's University teamed up with the Austin Dog Alliance to bring a little creature comfort to campus on Monday.

Sammy the therapy dog visited the library to help students relax during the home stretch of the semester.

"I think Sammy coming to the library during our finals week is a huge stress reliever. For all the students just to be able to take a break from studying and get a reminder from home and just be able to play with animals," Student Sara Glenn said.

In addition to stressed out students, Sammy also works with hospital patients and children with autism.
