ASU athletes rely on online classes for high-demand schedule - Samantha Pell, Cronkite News

Whether it is football, basketball, soccer or gymnastics, student-athletes have the added pressure to perform not only on the field but in the classroom. Practices, workouts, film sessions and travel days take up chunks of their weeks and demand creativity to build schedules with full-time academic loads. Enter online classes. At Arizona State, athletes are able to learn on an equal playing field with their in-class peers. Athletic department time commitments can’t be blamed for missing lectures or quizzes. Taking multiple online classes is common. This semester, ASU men’s basketball player Shannon Evans has all but one class online. During her senior year, former ASU women’s soccer player Lucero Lara had all online classes. The exception is freshmen athletes, who are expected to take all classes in person. https://cronkitenews.azpbs.org/2017/05/15/online-classes-asu-athletes/
