Choosing a college or university is all about information. Every year students with disabilities are forced to make choices about attending colleges or universities, with little to no tangible information on the accessibility of the campus. Federal state and local regulations may require colleges and universities to have accessible facilities, but the extent of that accessibility can be hard to gauge through a college brochure or recruiter call. It can be made even more difficult if a school is only doing the bare minimum for accessibility. There is already an extensive amount of data released on colleges an universities. Right now, on the internet, one could find out which schools have the best cafeterias, and yet there is no universal information on the accessibility of campus. There are even plans being made to create a more extensive rating system for colleges, but we need to work to make sure that plan includes information for veterans and individuals with disabilities. Students with disabilities should have access to the important information on the accessibility of college campuses to make informed decisions about their college years. Wounded warriors and injured veterans should have the tools they need to make informed choices about, the schools and universities they attend after performing their service.
