    This month the College Spaces team takes on the highly requested topic of orientation and mobility. Tips for confidently navigating through crowded universities, exploring surrounding college communities, and staying safe while doing it all. Join us this October when we’ll address all of this and more. Bring your questions, travel tips, and friends and be part of this exciting conversation!

College Spaces from Different Places is a group designed by and for low vision and blind students to have fun, build community, and share in our struggles and accomplishments.

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!
