MSW@USC Student to Compete in 2012 Paralympics
Eric Hollen is training to compete in this year's Paralympics, which follows the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.

Eric Hollen, a Virtual Academic Center student at the USC School of Social Work, was tending his horse farm about 10 years ago when his tractor tipped over, pinning him. He spent five months in a hospital being treated for the dislocation of his third and fourth lumbar vertebrae, a ruptured diaphragm, a broken pelvis and a torn aorta.
