As blind students, we are encountering unique daily realities that often remain unrecognized or misunderstood by the people around us. The National Association of Blind Students is thrilled to invite you to “Embrace the Quest; Experience the Now!”, with us as we explore these shared experiences with students from all over the region. It will be an engaging weekend packed with opportunities to challenge your perceptions and network with blind peers and mentors alike. You can expect a mix of interactive activities, thought-provoking conversations, and riveting presentations—with topics covering everything from securing accommodations to finding identity as a blind person. Ultimately, this journey promises to empower you to identify new ways of living the life you want. Regardless of where you are in your education, we hope you’ll join us for a weekend of growth and fun!
