Visually impaired student enjoying the ride at KSU


KENNESAW, Ga. (Dec 1, 2020) — Kennesaw State University student Lucas Rice dropped by the Outdoor Adventures office on campus one day to inquire about working there, and he wound up with much more than just his current job. Rice, who was born blind, became part of a community that has made his time at KSU unforgettable.

Rice said he loves his job, which primarily involves helping to promote the recreational and educational programs that Outdoor Adventures offers to the KSU community. Better yet, he has developed several friendships and frequently takes tandem bicycle rides with a fellow student or with Ed Baltes, the assistant director of Outdoor Adventures.

“At Outdoor Adventures, I’m part of the group,” said Rice, a senior from Perry, Ga., majoring in media and entertainment. “It’s like a home away from home. It’s family.”
