Students at the University of Central Florida are graduating this week.

And for the first time-thirteen students with intellectual disabilities will join them.

Like any other undergraduate-they’ve taken college classes, completed internships, and lived on campus.

The Education Desk met with one of those students-Elyse Mundelein and her mom Tina-as she gets ready to put on her cap and gown.
