Students balance school and caring for man's best friend.

Student dog owners are not common at Syracuse University, largely due to the added time and expense for typical college students, but the students who do have dogs say having a canine companion is one of the greatest feelings.

And as far as being “typical” college students, Brit Potter and James Tracey are far from it. Potter, a business management junior, and Tracey, a communications and rhetorical studies junior, are busy to say the least. Potter is on the Syracuse University men’s crew team and Tracey is in the SU Air Force ROTC program.
