Some colleges allow pets in dormitories
Sometimes AU students will have a roommate that has puked on their bed, peed on their floor or ate their pizza that has sat around for five days. Students in other colleges across the nation have similar problems - but these roommates are pets.
Several colleges have begun to allow students to keep animals in their dormitories, but AU is not one of them. As of right now, no pets are permitted in the dorms, according to Director of Residence Life Rick Treter
"We define a pet as anything that cannot live under water for more than five minutes - in other words - fish," he said.
Schools such as Washington and Jefferson College in Pennsylvania, Eckerd College in Florida and Stephens College in Missouri have opted for pet-friendly residence policies. The intention is to make adjusting to college life easier for new students as well as reap the financial benefits of keeping the students who want to own pets in campus housing, according to USA Today.
