Students, staff and members of the public keen for walkies are invited to bring along their four-legged friends to a free, lunchtime event which includes a dog walk to Magdalen Green, networking and dog treats.

The Paws 4 Thought event, organised by Craig Reoch, Student Experience Co-ordinator at the University, will launch SWITCH – the Student Wellbeing Initiative Targeting Community Health. A new initiative aimed at removing barriers to access for students interested in trying out a range of activities from sport to volunteering.

Craig says that SWITCH also offers students opportunities to develop transferable skills and boost their CV while they study.

“Our close-knit campus community offers us the perfect chance to get active outside our University lives,” he said.

“SWITCH is here to help support those interested in finding out what we can do outside of our usual bubbles. Get engaged, get involved and join our connected community. Since September, we have connected close to 30 students with extra-curricular activities that boost their own confidence and help make a difference.”
