DELAND, Fla. (AP) - Talk about Animal House. Stetson University in Deland has opened its first pet-friendly dorm.
By the time everyone moves in this week, Nemec Hall will house 31 students and 20 pets. That's eight cats, seven dogs, two rats, two guinea pigs and a fish.
The idea for a pet dorm came from Stetson President Wendy Libby, who arrived at the school in March. She previously had started a pet-friendly hall at Stephens College in Missouri.
The Stetson policy allows fish, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, rats, mice, cats and dogs under 30 pounds. Pit bulls, rottweilers, chows, akita and wolf breeds are prohibited.
