There are micropigs on campus for you to cuddle today



Pennywell Farm is visiting campus today to help you take out your essay and exam-induced frustration by cuddling adorable little micropigs.

If you think that this kind of stress relief will help your revision and possibly save your bacon in your exams, the cute piggies will be hanging out at the South piazza, just outside of Costa from 10.30am to 1.30pm.

The visit has been organised by the Guild to help ease students’ tension during exam time, and will hopefully be an improvement on Puppygate earlier this year.

Part of Guild President Rachael Gillies’ manifesto was a puppy room for this very purpose, and there was some controversy when it actually resulted in two  adult dogs at the Guild Advice unit for a few hours on one day during January exams.

This will hopefully make up for the mishap though, as micropigs are far more exciting than puppies, because they can fit in teacups, wear little hats, and be cuddled for long periods of time by humans.

If you’re enticed by wrapping a blanket around a squealing animal and hugging it until it stops, then get down there to check it out, but it will probably be busy, so make sure you head down early to get your cuddles worth.
