Some University of Georgia students are urging administrators to make the school's iconic arch accessible to everyone so they can participate in a campus tradition.
Khaled Alsafadi, who will graduate this year, wants to be able to go through the Arch as other students do as part of the school's graduation tradition.
Alsafadi uses a wheelchair to get around. He can get to the Arch, but not go through it because of its steep steps leading down from the UGA campus to a sidewalk beside Broad Street.
UGA spokesman Tom Jackson says that school officials are listening to the concerns and reviewing all options.
