Kutztown University has one of the largest vision programs in the United States, and we are one of fo ur undergraduate programs for vision. The students in the vision program begin taking classes such as braille and orientation and mobility during their 3 rd semester at Kutztown. If you happen to be at Kutztown University on a Monday night, it is likely tha t you will see students walking around campus blindfolded and being guided by a classmate. Dine in the Dark specifically helps fund some of the vision students who get accepted to present at conferences at the Council for Exceptional Children's national le vel. This year, five students in the vision program have been accepted to present at the national CEC conference in Tampa, Florida coming up in February 2018. This conference gives the students an opportunity to present their research at a national level as wel l as receive information from professionals in the field of visual impairments and blindness. This conference is very selective on who they accept to present, so this is an honor at an undergraduate level. Students and faculty receiving check for Dine in the Dark.
