"They say when you drop out you don't go back, and I probably wouldn't have if I hadn't found SNHU."

I am 20, and I am typically the youngest in my courses, lets start with that. I graduated high school, in 2012, and started attending Kansas State University that fall. I completed the fall semester, and then, due to family issues that led to failing grades, I dropped out half way through my second semester. I knew I wanted to continue my education, but for the time being I moved home and started working. I wasn't sure how I was going to continue college after moving home because my, then, fiancé was joining the Navy, and I knew that if I moved with him, enrolling in a university wasn't an option. So, I looked into my options and made one of the biggest decision someone at my age could, and I picked him. I had looked into SNHU and it seemed like a good decision, too. We wedded in September of 2013, and I moved from my home state of Kansas to Texas. Once I was settled in with my new life, I enrolled in courses, which started that November. I am in my third term, currently holding almost a 4.0 GPA, and I am seeking employment. The online courses work great with my husband’s schedule and the crazy lives we live. I am currently deciding a major and hope to graduate by fall 2017. They say when you drop out you don't go back, and I probably wouldn't have if I hadn't found SNHU.
