Fellow college students, anyone?

Noticed a few people with dorm restrictions... ah, dorm restrictions. My uni allows for a generous 20 gallons and no number restrictions, woo!

So, who here is in college? What's your major?

I'm in marine biology. I'm such a fish nerd. ^3^

5th year of college because I suck and can't settle on a major.

Started in Environmental Science, with a focus on water quality, but switched after I found out I'm number dyslexic and canNOT do math to save my life, even though I understand how to solve the problems.

Tried Anthropology, did well in that until last semester when I got sick and ended flunking out because I couldn't keep up with the work because of it.

Now I'm in a new school trying to just get a two year degree in the incredibly broad major of Visual Communications because at least I'll learn every computer software there is and even a little programming which even if I decide NOT to transfer back to my old school will at least look good on a resume.

I'm at university too. Our restrictions are 10gal max, but we can have as many tanks as we want as long as they are under 10.

I'm a third year Early Childhood Education/ Special Education dual. Still unsure if that's what I want to do LOL
I think the dorms allow 5 gallons max, though most people I see buying bettas for their dorm get tiny bowls.

I don't live on campus (have my own apartment) so I can have as many fish as I like!

I just graduated with majors in sociology and English literature. And I only lived in a dorm my first year because that's the only year that gets guaranteed housing... I went to one of the largest schools in the country ;)

I am attending a community college right now. I have been getting my 2 years A.S. in Science for 3+ years now sigh.. I am stuck now because I cannot get past my 2 Chems and 2 Calc requirements.

The official title of my major if/when I transfer to the 4 year University (to finish my Bachelors) will be a BS in Biology with a concentration in Environmental and Conservation Biology. (A Wildlife Biologist basically)

I am not doing too well right now and bleh, well this thread is not about whining. :/

Anyways, I don't live in a dorm and I have 7 animals. One of the animals I got because my friend could not keep her reptile in the dorm anymore cus they changed the policy. I AM forbidden anymore animals right now though by the BF :P

1 Doberman Mix: Emmy, 2 DSH Cats: Rowan & Jacob, 1 Bearded Dragon: Rainier (aka Mista Lizad Man), 1 Eastern Box Turtle: Greta, Two 5g tanks: Alchemy (Halfmoon) and Custard (Yellow VT)

I am special education student for my autism. Shame of people for buying bowls. My parents allow 2 tanks max nothing against terriums full of plants and potted plants.

(But I secretly kept one in my closet ;) )

I'm in college! I never dormed, though, so I don't know much about the restrictions. But, I was a music major at a state school for two years. Now I'm at a community college as a liberal arts major. -.- The difference?

When I didn't want to work on a paper last year: Oh, well... I have that theory homework due! And I really need to practice... And there's a lesson plan to write for practicum, and I really should get that reading for conducting done! And, um... I think there's that measure in my choral score that I haven't marked yet? So I can't POSSIBLY write my history paper now!

This year when I'm trying to avoid doing a paper: Er... Well, I have... Oh, wait! No homework in that class... But there's that--er... Never mind, already finished. But there's...! Crap. No more excuses... Guess I'll just spin around in my chair for a bit...

As a music major I ALWAYS had stuff to do. Now? I'm not doing much of anything. Guess it gives me more time to stare at my fish?
