What Autistic Students Can Learn Through Self-Guided Campus Tours

STEM grad student Patrick Dwyer takes us on a self-guided tour of his campus, University of California, Davis. He covers classrooms, cafeterias, dorms, disabilities offices, and more. It’s a lot of fun to explore the campus with Patrick, and we hope it inspires you to do some prep work of your own.

This video, Autistic and Transitioning to College? What Students and Families Need to Know, is also a must watch.  Questions about touring campuses or prepping for your first college semester? Let us know in the comments.
