Talking Darn College

ao all the colleges i talk to i always ask this on question, do you allow pets on campus? i always get the same answer NO.

so im talking to a Longwood rep today and i ask her and she says no but, i think they allow fish in fish tanks, so i cleverly ask what about snakes in a fish tank. she shot a cross look at me, but every one was laughing b/c 90% of the people at school know about my herp obssesion, and that i couldnt live w/o my lovely Farkus!

oh well, maybe my room mate will be cool with it and wont tell, or better yet have a male bp for her! i can only wish, but im still trying to think of how i will hide her.

Why don't you get an apartment nearby?
You don't necessarily have to live in residence if you can't find one that allows pets.

Don't get me wrong, rez life is wicked.
I lived in residence for 3 years, best times of my life and I met most of my closest friends there. But I didn't have any reptiles then either... I'm not sure if you could hide reptiles very well, but I did manage to make a mean batch of home brew under my desk

where are you looking to go to school?

Unless you have some sort of housing scholarship living off campus may prove to be cheaper. At least that's the case for me.

WEll personally, I don't see the problem, if they allow fish in tanks, why not snakes? I mean they ARE cleaner than fish... ever smell aquarium water after 6 months? lol

lol, Campus? lol I can't even live in the city limits with mine. NMSU campus also has a no pet policy. It gets ignored and the campus has probably close to 1000 feral cats. They trap, spay, and neuter the animals then re-release them, it has had a negative effect on the campus bird population.

*shrug* I don't see why campuses should allow people to keep pets. The buildings are a part of the college, they aren't condos. If you want to install a jacuzi and tear down walls and own snakes and caimens then get your own place. Not everyone is cool with snakes, just like not everyone is cool with dogs, and if you're living in a big building with many people (and roommates) who are going to college too, they shouldn't have to deal with that. How would you like it if they allowed dogs and you were terribly allergic?

Logically, there is nothing wrong with keeping snakes if you're responisble... most stay smallish, don't cost much, easy to care for, don't stink etc, but you always run the risk of them escaping which isn't cool for the other people there. I dunno, some places you go you need to deal with the rules. Part of life...

Is there nowhere they can live for the years you are in college?
