Snakes in the dorms?

<p>Okay, so my dad just came home from work and said that someone in his office told him that Rice had a big problem with snakes in the dorm rooms. I am ABSOLUTELY PARANOID about snakes in rooms... Can anyone confirm/refute this?</p>

<p>I have never heard anything about this. There was a homeless person who showed up in a Will Rice room, but that's not really the same thing.</p>

<p>whaat? there's got to be a story there, share.</p>

<p>Oh good. I am really terrified of snakes.</p>

<p>Well, it's no one I know personally, but apparently a homeless person wandered into a Will Rice suite while the occupants were on the other side playing video games. They didn't even know he was there until RUPD showed up.</p>

<p>I've never heard of anyone finding a snake in their room. </p>

<p>I've never heard of anyone even seeing a snake on Rice campus.</p>

<p>Neither kids have mentioned it... and we're going on 4 years now....</p>

<p>Moral of the story: LOCK YOUR DOOR.</p>

<p>But otherwise, I've never heard anything about a snake problem.</p>

<p>If you don't go to rice because you fear snakes in the dorms, you'll be posting there later.
(I know it says "applied," but same difference)</p>

<p>i love snakes!</p>

<p>Hey! Don't mock the phobia!</p>

<p>I've never heard of a snake on the campus either, but as for homeless people, apparently some year a homeless person got into Brown and someone who had left their door unlocked came home to find him in their bed. Eww.</p>

<p>wel i heard at yale or harvard they have mice in some of the dorms...
i guess if they had snakes too that would solve the mice problem =P</p>

<p>Checked with DD and she has not heard of anyone having snakes, nor has she seen any.</p>

<p>no.... but will rice has a snake painted on the walls on one of its staircases... it goes up three floors, and I think it has a name, but I'm not sure what it is.
I saw an eagle on campus once... so I'm sure those would scare away all the snakes.</p>

<p>Oh good. Thanks guys.</p>

<p>Just adding another "I've never heard my s mention a snake in his 4 yrs at Rice" to continue to reassure you.</p>
