Student Statements about the Services of the OAS


“The Office of AccessAbility Services has allowed me the chance to let my true academic abilities shine through.”

“I think the OAS is an amazing tool that many students aren’t aware of.”

“With help from the OAS, I have been able to be less stressed and confident about the work I put into school and am overall a happier person knowing I am not alone. It has given me the extra support most students are looking for, but aren’t always able to find.”

“The OAS was there for me from the moment I was accepted to ECSU and I continue to rely on it to stay a prosperous student.”

“The OAS has also given me the ability to be a note-taker for other students and to give back. It is empowering to be disabled and yet provide a service to others who are in a similar situation and know that my contribution is truly helping someone.”

“The Office of Accessibility Services has been beyond helpful during my time here at Eastern. I would not be succeeding the way I am today without them.”

“I have been able to prosper as a student and a person thanks to the help of the OAS, and am getting one step closer to my future every day.”

“I have overcome many obstacles due to the Office of AccessAbility Services.”

“I appreciate this service that Eastern supplies to their students because each individual deserves an equal chance at obtaining their own success.”

“The OAS name alone made me feel like this department was put there to help me through.”

“Previously, no matter how highly I thought of my friends that had a disability, when I was given a diagnosis I felt labeled, and as though my degree wouldn’t mean as much. But this all changed when I registered with the center and realized no matter the accommodation, the work was still all my own and I earned every grade I received.”

“The most important thing I have learned is about advocating for myself. This is a skill that will help me before and after graduation, and working in the career of my choice.”

“The OAS office has helped me when I needed it most; without the OAS I would not still be in school and graduating in one year.”

“As an incoming freshman the Office of AccessAbility has confirmed my decision for attending Eastern.”

“I can guarantee the next person who uses the OAS will have a better time at Eastern Connecticut State University, academically and socially.”

“Unfortunately, society often looks down upon those with psychological or physical disabilities, and stereotypes them as not being as capable. Thankfully, services such as OAS realize that everyone is capable; some just have different obstacles to overcome.”

“Due in part to the AccessAbility office, and taking advantage of the resources available, I unlocked my true potential.”
