7:00 pm: College Spaces from Different Places: Wrapping up summer, Jumping into Fall


Aug 17

Who says the fun has to stop just because summer is coming to a close? The College Spaces team is so excited to reconnect with new and old friends at our August meeting! We want to hear about all the great things you did this summer, and all the exciting things you’re looking forward to as the new schoolyear begins. Bring a new friend or two and join us for what is sure to be a fantastic conversation.

College Spaces from Different Places is a peer-led student organization which cultivates connections and community for all undergraduate college students. This group is designed by and for students who are blind or have low vision to have fun, build community, and share in our struggles and accomplishments. Many undergrads are currently missing out on forming social connections on their own college campus. Therefore, joining College Spaces from Different Places will give you an opportunity to come together with others from across the state. Leave your books and syllabi behind and join us!

 RVSP by August 13 or send questions to Daisy Soto at DSoto@lighthouse-sf.org or 415-694-7328. You DO NOT need any authorizations from the DOR to join.
