    It's not that bad as far as safety is concerned-just use your common sense. You wouldn't walk alone on the beach at night in LA would you? No, so don't walk alone on the beach here. Would you leave your laptop lying out for 5 hours in a public library in NYC? No, so don't leave your stuff lying about while you are off somewhere else here. If you decide to live off campus, get a dog. Have the bus take you to your door after dark. Don't try to walk back to campus alone after dark. Take a taxi or the school bus. Bring some pepper spray in your checked bags.

    I haven't heard of anyone having problems getting their 4th year placements, but keep in mind there are only so many spots, so if everyone wants to go to say, Colorado State, some of you aren't going to get your first choice.

    Not all N Amer. CVMs accept SGU students for clinicals. I think the list is around 12 now. But the schools that took SGU students after Ivan were really impressed with the quality of the students' educations so the list may be growing soon.

    The only way (aside from having a service dog) that you can have a dog in a school owned room is for you to get one of the three or four such rooms at GA and that's like $4k a term. And as a newbie you WON'T get that, I can practically guarantee it.

    Lots of people have spouses down here. There is no work for them unless they are one of the few that say work at the coffee cart or something. Or if they have a skill that is needed down here-like they are a hairdresser or something. We need a hair dresser. K is leaving to go to vinnies next term with her SO

    Our list of affiliated schools has actually been growing quickly, and we are currently affiliated with 20 of the 28 schools in the US, and are in the final stages of finalizing contracts with two more schools in the US and another in Canada. About 90% of the students have gotten their first choice for their 4th year.

    Many of our vet students do bring down pets and the school can help you find housing close to the campus, that will allow animals.

    What do you think? Malamute, Newfoundland, and the like should probably be left to more temperate climates.

    Can you describe the typical type of off-campus apartment at SGU?

    Umm...not that much different than apartments most anywhere. I've had worse places in the U.S. I have a nice, cheap apartment with good landlords though. My complex has off-street parking (pretty common), bars on all windows (very common and recommended), is in Lance Aux Epines (most neighborhoods will do...actually...check the SGU Significant Others website, which has just about all this info. By the way, my rent is $500 USD/month for a 1 bdrm 1 bath furnished apt with no view but nice and quiet in Lance Aux Epines (and key point...dogs allowed!)




    p.s. There will always be some with bad experiences...many of them legitimate and some not legitimate. Do some research and make a smart decision regarding off campus housing. I MUCH prefer off campus due to cost savings and the fact that I have pets. Some prefer on campus due to convenience or other reasons.
