Students with physical disabilities attend and graduate from college at a significantly lower rate than students without disabilities. The purpose of this study was to explore the experience of athletes participating in inter-collegiate wheelchair basketball. Findings of this study suggest trying new things, developing a diverse support system, and learning to successfully navigation barriers leads to success in the college environment.
