Puppies & Popcorn

Doggies @Dunn will be Wednesday, April 22nd from 12p-3p at Dunn Library.

Each semester, over 200 Simpson students, faculty and staff have enjoyed playing with the puppies (yes there will be four-month-old puppies!) or watching them romp.  Take a doggie study break and relieve holiday stress!  

Dogs provided from Paws & Effect will be located by the first floor study rooms. Popcorn will be available.
