For some students with physical disabilities, more time is required to plan routes to class and ways to get into buildings.
“I purposefully go to the same buildings over and over again to make sure they are accessible,” said Nicole Hobbs, an English senior who has cerebral palsy.
Hobbs said she hates asking a random stranger to hold her crutches while she walks up the steps.
“I don’t want to ask them for help,” Hobbs said. “I don’t want to feel like a burden to them.”
