Using Drexel Online to Juggle Work and School

In this 2012 Olympic season, Drexel graduate student Thom Wall has his own medal to boast about. In late July, Wall won a silver medal at the annual International Jugglers' Association festival in North Carolina. In the professional juggling world, this competition is considered the "world championships" — by that definition, Wall's win makes him the second best juggler in the world.

In between juggling acts at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, Virginia, this summer, Wall has been able to balance a juggling career and life as a Drexel student pursuing his master’s degree online.

"There are not a lot of master's programs in nonprofit arts administration out there — certainly not many programs online.

The flexibility gives me time to pursue my other interests at the same time," Wall said.
