More Colleges Going Pet-Friendly
For some students, they will no longer have to suffer the heartache of looking into the sad puppy eyes of Fido as they say goodbye to go back to school after a too-short
holiday back home. Now, at several university campuses, Fido can come along too.Pets
can bring great comfort to stressed, lonely, and homesick students studying far from home. Just as pets
, whether they are of the furry, scaled, or feathered variety, can bring a sense of warmth, love, and calm to families back home, they can do the same for students as well. Pets
act as companions and can help students hone their sense of responsibility and duty as they care for their animals while simultaneously balancing academics and socializing. Having a pet can even encourage students to stay out of trouble so that they do not jeopardize the well-being of the creature.
