Can I bring my pet fish and their 1.5 gallon tank to my dorm in August?
-Nervous Little Froshie
I guess the point is moot now, huh? Since Yours Truly isn’t at the beck and call of students over the summer, I assume you’ve had to do one of three things by now: a) contact someone in Residential Life; b) decide to bring your fish regardless of the rules; or c) leave for fish for dead at home, where no one else will take the time to feed it or whisper sweet nothings to it.
I hope you’ve chosen to bring your Nervous Little Fishie because you can, in fact, keep a fish in your room. ORL draws the line at aquatic frogs and turtles though, so I hope you didn’t bring the whole crew.
Sorry for the late reply, Nervous, but we mascots do need our rest after the long hours we put in over the course of a grueling academic year. I appreciate you reaching out to me, and I hope you will continue to consider me a fount of knowledge and an all-around good guy. Because that’s how I think of myself. Have a great school year, and give your fish a kiss…er, a hug…you know, come to think of it, what good is a fish?
