Stetson University is pet friendly for students

Stetson University lets students have pets

Now that school is back in session, the pet loving students over at Stetson University in Deland not far from Orlando have something to be happy about. It seems that Stetson has made a pet friendly dorm so students can take their pets with them.

Nemec Hall is a dorm on Stetson University that allows students to bring their pets with them, with a few exceptions. Dogs under 30 lbs. are allowed, as are cats and small caged animals.

Small fish and turtles are also allowed. However birds, most reptiles and rabbits are not allowed because of odor issues. I was a bit surprised they don’t allow birds.
