There is perhaps no better way to celebrate the journey that is earning an online degree than with a 2,000-mile road trip filled with breathtaking views of waterfalls, lakes, caves and cityscapes. It’s an adventure made even more incredible when you find out it is the first real vacation Cameron Saylor has taken since he was 5 years old.
“I’ve really been exploring and having a summer to myself,” he explains during a stop on the Oregon coast. “The past 20 years have just been about schooling. I’m enjoying this time, and getting a sense of the real world.”
Back in May, Cameron embarked on another meaningful trip when he traveled from his home in California to Arizona, where he had the chance to attend his online college graduation on campus at ASU.
“It was like something out of a movie,” he says of the ASU campus. “Beautiful and pristine. The people were nice and welcoming, and you could really feel the sense of community and pride for ASU. My dad and my wife came with me and it was amazing to share that time together.”
