Emma Johnson, senior, communication sciences and disorders
Ever since my first year of my undergraduate experience, I have felt supported by the awesome team in the Services for Students with Disabilities Office. The entire staff is always welcoming, and I know I can go to any of the caring people for assistance.
I've felt comfortable reaching out to them for academic advising as well as assistance with my graduate school application process. They are more than willing to make sure all of my needs are met, including receiving the correct accommodations for the GRE graduate school entry exam. The staff consistently makes every one-on-one meeting specific to my needs. They never fail to express concern for how I am doing personally, professionally and academically. They know me by name and always accommodate a time to meet with me, no matter what.
I strongly encourage all students with any disability to receive accommodations through the university and not hesitate to reach out to the SSD staff for advising and any type of academic assistance. No matter how frequently I visit, they consistently go above and beyond to ensure that all my academic and higher education needs are met.
