ASU Online students kick-off semester with first-day photos

Students are officially back in the swing of things and looking forward to working towards finishing the fall semester strong! At the start of every new school year, students of all ages fill up social media feeds with photos showing off their DIY first day of school signs. From their school name and favorite subject to overall career aspirations, students use these photos to put a fun twist on kicking off a new chapter in their educational journeys. Because everyone loves to capture their new beginnings (no matter what grade you’re in!), this semester some of our ASU Online students jumped in by putting their spin on the fun fad.

This fall, ASU Online welcomed 42,743 students from across the country, spanning 200+ degree programs. Students are now back to the virtual classroom, some just embarking on their educational journey, and others preparing to complete their final semester of classes. Senior Alexis is wrapping up her ASU Online experience and like many of her peers, is balancing an education, a business, and mom duties in pursuit of her goals.

Some of our other online students like Ariel are capturing this special milestone with their children – while Ariel tackles 16th grade, her daughter celebrates moving into 4th grade!

ASU Online student, Sarah marked the start of her sophomore year by sharing how she is “one more semester closer to her degree” and has already “learned art, math, how to code, make a Star Wars game app, geology and dance” since her first day at ASU Online. As an organizational leadership and project management major, Sarah also notes some skills she can apply to her life and career: “how to be a better leader, how to be a better follower, so that I may learn new ways.”

Below you can check out Alexis, Ariel, and Sarah’s fun photos, along with a few other awesome Sun Devils sharing their “New School Year” excitement. We wish you all an incredible semester!
