Born without arms or legs, SU alum John Robinson tells his story about facing life's challenges.

John Robinson recalled how most of his college days at Syracuse University were spent waiting in lines.

“In college, you’re always waiting in lines,” Robinson said. “Waiting in line for the movies, waiting in lines for games, for textbooks. And my view of everything [while I was in lines] was people’s butts.” 

One day, Robinson was waiting in a backed-up line when a lady behind him yelled, “Hey! If you got off your knees, the line would start moving a lot faster!”
