Imagine being in college and being deaf-blind. What opportunities might you have? What types of challenges would you face? This publication describes a study that begins to answer these questions. During the study, 11 college students with deaf-blindness were interviewed about their college experiences. They were like most college students in many ways, but in addition to managing their classes and social lives, they had to educate others about deaf-blindness, adjust to changes in their vision, coordinate interpreting services, and get orientation and mobility instruction. These students are truly role models. As more young adults with deaf-blindness begin to attend college, it is essential to understand what college is like for them and make sure they have the support and assistance they need to be fully included in college life.
