Guitar through a bass amp

I have a small bass amp that I want to bring to school with me (residence) to play my guitar through, as my guitar amp is too big. Will I damage the amp in any way if I do this?

I don't think the bass amp will be able to handle the immense treble of the high notes on the guitar as compared to a bass.

It'll be fine. Remember, the Fender Bassman is really a bass amp.

yeah it should be ok...a bass amp should be able to handle a guitar quite easy.
