BA English Language & Literature

"SNHU Online is the answer for me. I am able to work, live a forever-changing Army lifestyle and still work towards my BA in English Literature."

I am simply a second-time college student trying to do my best to "get it right." Straight out of high school I attended basic training during the summer. Days after returning home, I began my first semester of college at a local university. The university was an ocean compared to the pond I grew up in and my education took a turn for the worst.

I kept my head above water for almost two years, until I married into the active Army and left the university. It wasn't until I had left that I realized I wanted a degree so much. I struggled for almost a year trying to find the right path, school, degree and so forth.

SNHU Online is the answer for me. I am able to work, live a forever-changing Army lifestyle—including a surprise relocation to Italy—and still work towards my BA in English Literature. I think that everyone struggles when trying to decide what they want to be when they "grow up," but in growing up, we finally decide. The beauty of knowledge is that once you get a taste, it is all or nothing!
