Lambs and chicks will be among the cute animals on show to students on the 8 May from 11.30am in the JCR.
Officials say the move is being done to “relieve” exam stress.
“Spring chicks? Baby lambs? Yes, these will be just some of the adorable animals on show in the JCR on the 8th May to relieve the stress of exams,” the Facebook event description says.
It comes following Vision’s exclusive yesterday that Halifax College would be opening up a puppy lounge for the exam period.
Sponsorship Officer Rachel Smith and the Vice-President of Welfare Jessica Smith hopes the idea will help students who are stressed during weeks 5 to 7.
“The exam period is a particularly stressful time for many students and that often coincides with an increase in feelings of homesickness,” Jessica said.
“The comfort that you can get from physical contact, specifically hugging and playing, with another living thing has been shown to help reduce this type of emotional stress, especially if that animal is a household pet that reminds you of home.”
Meanwhile, Derwent College is offering students free yoga classes.
The sessions, which will run every Monday throughout term, will help maintain “air and peace” throughout the college, officials hope.
They added: “So whether you are a yoga novice or a pro, everyone can benefit from the stress relief Yoga provides, whilst also improving flexibility and strength. And it’s free. You have nothing to lose!”
