Jennifer Galjour overcame a host of disabilities to earn a 3.0 GPA in her first semester of community college with the help of College Living Experience, a growing program that helps students with disabilities transition into college. Cornell University findings indicate that just 12.5% of adults with disabilities hold bachelor's degrees. Austin American-Statesman (Texas)
