In his third year at Ryerson University, visually impaired student Johnny To, has had little luck in finding accommodations from the school to help him get to classes on campus. As a student who pays tuition like everyone else, Johnny feels that he should be able to receive help from the schools Academic Accommodation Services (AAS) centre to help him get to class.
