My child has been admitted to SCU and is considering the school as one of her top choices. However, she has some learning challenges (specifically, anxiety, stress, ADHD and a few other learning challenges) and has identified a school’s support system for students with challenges as one of the more important criteria on which to make her decision on the school to attend. We were lucky to have visited the campus before the pandemic and really like the campus and people we met, include folks at the disability resource center.
Since her acceptance, we have also found the resource center to be very friendly, open and willing to work with my daughter, but the actual real world experience of a current student may be very different. We also reached out to them for some actual student references but they cannot share any because of confidentially reasons. We would love for my daughter to talk to some actual students with challenge who can talk about their personal experiences at SCU.
If you or someone you know fits this scenario, do send me a private note and we can have that conversation. If you are a person with challenges, you know how critical this piece of the overall college experience is, so I hope you will be willing to connect with an incoming student to share your thoughts.
