A university in Texas is using dogs to help students relax as they prepare for finals.

Rice University has brought in dogs to the campus library during finals week from the pet therapy organization "Faithful Paws."

Whenever students need a break, university officials say they can just walk over and play with any of the dogs roaming around.

Students say it's nice to get a chance to think about something else besides finals, even if it's just for a few minutes.

The university says it will likely bring the dogs back next year.
