Students Living With Visual Impariments Adjust to College Life

By  | 

Students living with visual impairments were welcomed at Florida State University for a course catered just for them.

For the next seven weeks, eight students entering FSU in the fall will enjoy the university experience course.

Started three years ago, the course was developed as a way for these students to have an easy transition into college life.

Students learn everything from routes on campus and how to make use of campus resources.

"Some are more excited than others. It is a big campus to learn as well. For some students, this is the first time that they have left home," says Joseph Strechay, an education coordinator with FSU.

The course is supported by Florida's Division of Blind Services.
