Pets of any kind (that includes goldfish) are not in allowed in college housing. Students participating in College sponsored programs, such as rodeo, which require students to bring their horses may do so, provided those animals are housed in the appropriate and designated areas. Only those animals necessary for participation in a specific program may be present on Campus. Other pets are not allowed on Campus at any time. The fine for having a pet in the residence hall (first offense) is $500.00, and the second offense is $750 fine and disciplinary sanctions. Pets found on campus will be collected and sent to the local animal shelter.
