14 visually impaired students from around southwest Georgia enjoyed a week of learning new skills courtesy of Albany State University.

During the week of June 4th, students attending the Albany Advocacy Resource Center's third annual Summer Transition Program at Albany State University learned how to develop relationships, experience life on the college campus, make education and career decisions, and develop leadership skills. They also were able to visit other colleges in Albany to learn the difference between two-year, four-year, and technical colleges.

Students were also able to meet vendors who provide assistive technology to meet the student's needs for college and/or work and enjoyed some fun activities such as swimming and beep baseball.
