We meet to discuss issues of interest to blind students and share information and ideas. We conduct two seminars each year where experienced blind students and successful, employed blind individuals share what they have learned in dealing with a variety of common situations such as Disability Services offices, hiring readers, misconceptions about blindness, and many other topics. We assist with a state-wide scholarship and distribute information about the National Federation of the Blind's scholarship program.
