College Fix listed some of the activities for students across America: “Therapy dogs and miniature horses. Coloring books. Massages. Even Fortnite tournaments.”

“Campuses such as the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Michigan State are just two out of many that recently offered the friendly puppers to pet and relax with in between study sessions,” they added.

The University of Pennsylvania and Yale offered massages to students who were first to sign-up. Penn State offered meditation and “cloud gazing” sessions to students before their exams.

Other universities, such as Hawaii Pacific, Washington State, and Kent State, offered Fortnite tournaments for stressed students during their final exams.
