Fostering Community at Peabody … with Pets!

Pets are seen regularly on campus this time of year – from therapy goats to dogs being walked across the lawns on a beautiful spring day. The Peabody Library and the Peabody Office of Student Engagement & Well-Being recently decided to bring a little of that cheer online. The Peabody Paws event on April 9 brought together close to 30 students, faculty, and staff — all excited to introduce their furry friends. Participants shared stories about their pets, including cats, dogs, and birds, and reminisced about the animals normally seen on the Peabody campus this time of year. But most of all, the giggles and smiles were a great reminder of the strength of the Peabody community – both virtually and in-person.
