Pawse App — Aiding Students in Stress and Grief
Role — Design Team
Timeline — Fall 2017
The Pawse mobile app is an IOS app that connects stressed students to Pawse official therapy dogs on campus. This project was a collaborative project, with design partners who are linked below.
Our app connected users with nearby certified emotional-support dogs on campus, and users could also be following their favorite dogs. Pawse is a stress-relief initiative partnered with the on-campus counseling center, Cook Counseling, to bring on-campus therapy dogs to stressed students. Our features included dog scheduling for events, profiles, and a social presence for each dog in the Pawse program. It also included scheduling opportunities to interact with the dogs and their volunteers throughout the semester. We also featured a matching system to pair stressed students with support dogs that fit them and their needs the best.
