PAWS for Stress Relief going virtual

11/18/2020 

One of SUNY Cortland’s beloved end-of-semester traditions is going virtual in 2020.

PAWS for Stress Relief is moving to Instagram. All members of the campus community are invited to participate.

To enter, send a direct message to @CortlandPaws on Instagram with a photo of your pet. Please remember:

  • Include the name of your pet.
  • Write a short bio of your pet. How old is it? What are their favorite activities? Can you describe your pet’s personality?
  • All pets are welcome.
  • Submit your entry by Friday, Dec. 4.

@CortlandPaws will post photos of pets during finals week, Dec. 14 to Dec. 18.

One random entry will be selected to win a 30-minute massage with Recreational Sports certified massage therapist Hannah Polanko-Baker.

Participants may also enter by sending an email with the required information to the Health Promotion Office.

Example posts and more information about stress release activities is available online through Memorial Library.

PAWS for Stress Relief is sponsored by Memorial Library, the Institute for Civic Engagement and the PAWS for Stress Relief Committee.
