Zoe Allen-Lewis is an accepted student at Virginia Commonwealth
University. Zoe is a prospective member of their ACE-IT program; which
offers a college experience and education for young adults with
intellectual disabilities. However, Zoe was recently informed by the
University that she will not be provided on-campus housing (although all
other freshmen are guaranteed housing), making it impossible to attend
considering she lives two hours away.
The College experience is more than just books and clubs. On Campus life gives many individuals – as well as those with disabilities a chance to truly excel by developing the networks and friendships that will define their academic and professional careers.
