-ASU Online student, Egbert Oostburg
ASU Online Student BAS in Operations Management
“I looked at several different degree programs. ASU had the best fit as far as my work/life balance and personal life balance and a degree that made sense for my field. It was a convenient program, and I saw Veterans programs set up so I knew they had dealt with Vets before.”
-Joshua Breitag, ASU Online Student

ASU Online Student RN to BSN Nursing Program

-Lisa Taverner, ASU Online Student
“I'm taking a gender and communication class which has helped me a lot to communicate my needs to people. My brain has woken up and I want to ask more questions and learn more things, every class is helping me communicate what I want to do, and has opened up this whole other world of possibility!”
