College is Going to the Dogs (and Cats, too)!
Starting with the Spring 2011 semester, Lees-McRae College will join the ranks of other pet-friendly colleges and universities by allowing students to bring their pets to live with them at school. Lees-McRae College is located in Banner Elk, North Carolina. Barry Buxton, the president of the Presbyterian college, was recently quoted as saying, “We love our pets and we recognize that students who are pet owners are generally responsible and caring individuals. We want to encourage pet adoption and awareness that all of God’s creatures are sacred.” For more information about this college and their pet policy, please click here.
