My college experience was really great. I went to St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. I was the first student in a wheelchair to live in a dorm, so they renovated a dorm room for me, put in a roll-in shower. And, it was a room that four guys had lived in the summer before I moved in, and they gave it to me all by myself. And they put a roll-in shower in, and that was a really great way to start on my own because I had people around me all the time if I needed anything. And that’s when I started using the system of having an OT student who worked for me a couple times a week to help with cooking and cleaning. I got schedule accommodations for classes—I never stared before 10:00 AM that first semester. So, I graduated in four years with a Bachelors Degree in Physiology.
