Autistic Student Thrives at University of N. Florida

Chris Regan
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- In many ways Chris Regan is a typical college student.
The 19-year-old sophomore shares a suite in the Osprey Fountains dorm at the University of North Florida with three roommates. He carries a 3.35 grade point average and is a member of Delta Alpha Phi, an honor society, and of the Greenpeace Club. On weekends, he goes to his family’s Palm Valley home so he can work at the nearby Publix.
But Regan isn’t typical. He has a form of autism spectrum disorder.
