Are there career counseling opportunities for ASD students?

The Ohio College2Careers program under the Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) agency is specifically designed for students in Ohio with disabilities to have support and resources available to complete their college education and continue on in the job market. The on-campus program is led by a vocational rehabilitation counselor, Jessica Vass, who assists students interested in the program and is located in the Student Accessibility Services Office within the University Library in Suite 100. Vass also spends two days per week at Career Exploration and Development in Suite 261 within the Schwartz Center. She can be reached at jvass_gst@kent.eduor by phone at 330-672-8032.
