Photo Caption: Berkeley College in Midtown Manhattan recently partnered with Bideawee, a pet welfare organization, to host a “Paws-A-Tively” Stress Free event. Students took a break from studying for exams to meet Tom Tulipan, Bideawee volunteer, and his greyhound, Rameses. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pets can decrease blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The American Heart Association also found that owning a dog may be associated with a reduced risk of heart disease. The event was organized by Berkeley College Counseling Services and the Office of Student Development and Campus Life. Pictured (L to R) are Mr. Tulipan; Berkeley College students Lisa Walker and Aneja Davis, both of the northern Bronx; and Berkeley College student Daniela Bullard of the southern Bronx, petting Rameses.
