See what happens when eight online students met up with SNHU staff for a day full of fall fun in NH. Everyone took in the beauty of the fall foliage with a SNHU bus excursion to an apple orchard before heading up to the White Mountains, enjoying stops along the scenic Kancamagus Highway.
I was really excited when I got the invite. It gave me a chance to meet people face to face and have conversations and just be involved.
We stopped at the SNHU campus for a quick tour.
Visiting the campus was great. I’ve never been on campus.
Even though we’re studying in a wide variety of subject matters, there’s a shared experience that creates a powerful sense of community.
It’s fun to do this type of activity. It really gets you out there enjoying the fall weather and the foliage.
Being able to meet more of my fellow classmates today is great. It’s always a good opportunity to meet people that are going through the same things that we are. Being an online student, we don’t physically see classmates day to day, so it’s nice to actually meet and put names to faces and build on friendships from there.
We tend to be aware of big hitters in the tech space who are male, but less frequently are we aware of the women, and in many cases the women are absent.
For Toni Harris, winning a scholarship to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing next month fits perfectly with her lifelong interest in computing and technology.
