College can be stressful. Oftentimes students are away from home for the first time. Not only do they have to adjust to being in a new environment, they also need to make friends, attend classes and get good grades. They’re doing this while participating in sports or clubs, studying for increasingly difficult exams and trying to be an adult when they may not quite feel like one yet. With all the activities college students have going on, sometimes they just need to take a moment to breathe deeply and relax.

Enter Campus Cat.

Every day the ginger cat visits the University of Augsburg in Bavaria, Germany, and hangs out with the students, helping them de-stress, Bored Panda reports. While her real name is unknown, she takes on her duties as Campus Cat very seriously.
