Wheelchair Experience

During the week, my pledge brother Hector and I decided to participate in the CCAR’s abling activity. The purpose of this activity is to see how difficult simple and daily ruitines are when in a wheelchair. Hector and I walked from the table to a conference room about 40 feet away. We were timed and then we had to make the same trip in a wheelchair. Unfortunately this trip required us to get up stairs. We had to find an alternate route and it took almost triple the time to make this trip. People, including myself did not know the struggles of someone in a wheelchair until I experienced it first hand.  It truly opened up my eyes to this issue and made me realize that we should be a campus that is more handicap friendly.
