Hi,

Thank you for the replies! I'm the first blind student to go to this college in a number of years, so I think VR will probably find the O&M instructor for me. 

Have a happy summer!

She worked with me for 3 days before and 7 days after I first came to campus, for about 2 to 3 hours. Now that I am more used to campus this year, I will probably not be needing these services.

Did your state agency hire an O&M instructor? I'm meeting with my VR counselor soon to talk about the transition to college, but I was curious to know what you've experienced.
