College is one of the most exciting and fun times of your life, but it is also one of the most stressful times. Balancing school, extra curricular activities and social life is a big challenge that every college student must deal with but having a furry partner in crime can help transition into all of the new aspects in your life.

Social Life:

Having a pet in college is an awesome topic of conversation when trying to meet new people around campus, and is a great excuse to invite people over to the new house or apartment. Walking your pet or bringing your furry friend to the park is also a great way to meet new people who have something in common with you. Not to mention, a pet is the best wingman around. Ever.


When classes have you down and stressed out, there is no better stress reliever than a pet. Simply playing with them or giving them a good belly rub does wonders for both you and your pet. It gives you a break from your studies and you know that your pet is always there to support you, even when you have three exams in your toughest classes the next day.

Extra curricular:

After a long day at school, then meetings, chapter or work it is the best to come home to a happy face. The love and excitement your pet will greet you with after a long stressful day will be the only reason you need to see that having a pet in college was the right choice to make.

So whether it’s a cat, a dog, a fish, a bird or anything else, you’ll love having your very own pet at school with you.
