Disabilities on campus: problems and possibilities | The Michigan Daily

Navigating the 780-square acre campus by foot is already difficult enough for the able-bodied individual. For physically disabled students, or 5.7 percent of the student body, the neglect to shovel makes ramps slick, entries circuitous and commutes more dangerous.

As I trudged 20 minutes from my home on South Campus to the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office in Haven Hall, I was already in a position of privilege with a body I take for granted.
