This semester, more than 3,000 ASU Online students graduated from ASU. About 1,500 of those students made the journey to Phoenix from around the globe and participated in a welcome reception hosted by ASU Online.
Students got to meet their success coaches and classmates, and participate in cap decorating and campus tours. At the event, a large map was revealed where students could put a pin on where they traveled from, showcasing that ASU Online students come from all around the world.
For a lot of students, this event meant getting to meet their success coaches for the first time, who helped guide them throughout their college journey. ASU Online criminology and criminal justice student Wilson Peng, got to meet his Success Coach, Felecia O’Neal.
“My success coach is like my best friend who tells it like it is. Felecia and I talk on the phone weekly and will exchange emails or chat on Pitch throughout the week. We talk about how I’m doing in classes, connecting to different campus resources, my personal life and big decisions I'm making, like choosing a career,” Peng said.
