Because the campus is a state facility they are required by law to be
accessible. Last Ravensdale there was a gal that didn't have a wheel chair
or make arrangements for scooter to be delivered to campus and so the campus
security gave her rides to the building where her classes were....not that
this would happen on a large scale basis - I am sure that the college would
like to use their security people for actual security, but, there are many
options available. NWPCG would also make arrangements to have a scooter
delivered for anyone wishing to have use of one at Ravensdale, (of course,
NWPCG would just make the arrangements for you, not pay for it) or whatever
other equipment one might need to be mobile at Ravensdale.
