EDWARDSVILLE, IL (KTVI)- Final exams mean lots of stress for students, especially college students. On Monday, Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville got a break from that stress with the help of some four-legged friends. SIUE partnered with C.H.A.M.P. Assistance Dogs of Florissant, MO, to bring dogs to the Morris University Center for the students spend time with and relax, at least for a few minutes.

SIUE has been bringing dogs to campus during finals for about four years.
