The Campus Activities Board brought a free petting zoo to campus to welcome back students and celebrate the beginning of classes.

The petting zoo drew in students from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., allowing them to feed and pet the animals. Some of the animals from A-Z Exotic Animals included: goats, a baby cow, a llama, a porcupine, an alpaca and even a monkey.
