WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University is bringing in counselors and therapy dogs for a “Day of Healing” following last week’s killing of a student who was shot and stabbed on campus.

The counselors and dogs will available Friday at the France Cordova Recreational Sports Center on the West Lafayette campus.

Purdue has also invited student groups to hold their own healing events Friday in response to the Jan. 21 killing of 21-year-old Andrew Boldt. A fellow student has been charged with murder.

The therapy dogs for Friday’s event specialize in working with college students after tragedies, and will come from Indiana’s K-9 Assisted Crisis Response Team.

The use of dogs in comforting students was documented following deadly shootings at Virginia Tech University, Northern Illinois University and the University of Alabama-Huntsville.

Cody Cousins – whose most recent address is in Warsaw but also has ties to Centerville, Ohio – has been charged in the killing.
