James Geiger, a senior in TheatreUSF, has cerebral palsy. He says the Accessi-BULL event, which was co-sponsored by Project ABLE, a student group he belongs to, demonstrates the important roles people with disabilities play at USF.

James, who in addition to Project ABLE also works with Student Government and its "SAFE Team" Campus Escort program, says all these extracurricular activities have truly enriched his time at USF.


Lorene Burnam, Interim Director of USF Student with Disabilities Services, says her group provides "a laundry list" of academic accommodations to USF students with disabilities.
