Graduated: Dropped Out
After spending a year at UNLV, Kimmel transferred to ASU. During that time, he was a regular caller to KZZP's morning show. Thanks in part to the station's affinity for him, as well as the pregnancy of then-girlfriend Gina Maddy, he decided to drop out and hedge his bets on a full-time radio career. This worked, for a while, until he was laid off from not only KZZP, but two more stations in the following years. However, he got back on his feet, eventually landing at KROQ in LA, starting the chain that eventually led him to his own late-night talk show.
Formerly known as Kate Brosnahan, Spade made it to Arizona after transferring from University of Kansas to ASU. Her journalism degree landed her a gig at Mademoiselle magazine, where she was an accessories editor. It was there that she realized the handbag market needed some better options, so she decided to start creating her own. Within a few years of starting the Kate Spade handbags company, she opened an NYC storefront, and two decades later, the brand has expanded to other items like home decor and jewelry. Although she's spent most of her career in New York, we'd like to think that her signature bold and bright color designs have something to do with her time in the AZ heat.
