After serving in the military in Iraq and Germany, Jason was ready to stay closer to home. "The Leighton School is right down the street from my home," he explained. "I wanted a degree with the IU name, so it was the perfect option."
While in the military, Jason developed leadership and networking skills. He chose areas of study that would complement and expand on those skills-- international business, management information systems and economics. "The courses are challenging," Jason remarked, "but my professors explain the material so well, and they are always available if I have questions."
Managing a triple major is demanding, but Jason is on top of it. "I learned discipline and focus in the military," he explained. Jason’s academic achievements in the Leighton School have not gone unrecognized. He’s a member of Beta Gamma Sigma and Omicron Delta Epsilon---national honorary societies in business and economics.
"I’m getting a quality education, close to home at a great price," Jason commented. "It was the right choice for me."
