No Business Degree for Fido

For a brief time during the late 1970s, the School of Business allowed students to bring their dogs to class, recalled Richard Kochanek, professor emeritus.

One day he was sitting in his office, in the accounting department, when a student dashed in with her two Golden Retrievers.

“Take them!,’’ she wailed. “I have an interview!’’

Before he could protest, she ran out the door, leaving her two companions in the custody of Kochanek, who was wide-eyed in disbelief.

Soon after, the school revoked its pet-friendly policy, with the exception of service animals – and perhaps our mascot, Jonathan the Husky!
