Asperger Child and College Anyone?

Hello Friends,
My daughter has Aspergers Syndrome and attends college. Does anyone else have a child who has Aspergers and attends college?
Nancy is 19 years old and is in her second year at Mary Washington. She is intelectually gifted, like most of our Asperger kids, but her social skills are in the sewer. She also suffers from social anxiety, again common with Asperger kids.
My husband and I are both very proud of Nancy and what she's doing. We survived 12 years of torture in school. We skated by in elementary school, but middle school and high school were brutal. The kids tormented her on a regular basis.
I'd be interested in hearing from other parents in the same boat as me.
Peggy
