For both Kevin and Kayla, discovering ASU Online became an opportunity for a second chance.
“I had heard ads on the radio, and ASU’s staff was on top of it from the moment I said I was interested,” says Kevin. “There was always someone available to talk, and I never really had questions because they answered them before I even asked.”
At the time, Kevin was working for Disney in California as a resort lead for hotel recreation, managing day-to-day operations and lifeguard training, among other areas. He had taken junior college classes, and ASU admissions felt the online bachelor’s in organizational leadership would be a good route. He was quickly amazed by the flexibility of the program.
“I loved how well organized it was,” he explains. “I never thought of myself as a very disciplined person, but there was something about it that just kept me invested and wanting to see it through. It was never that hard, although it was time consuming. I made sure I used my free time wisely. Whenever I got home from working at Disney, I would do homework.”
