"My experience at SNHU has paved the way for aspirations of teaching at the collegiate level that I never believed would be possible."

Higher education goals have never come easy for me. The work and class time have always been the easy parts. During my undergraduate, I battled through a debilitating illness and cancer, but managed to graduate with a less-than-stellar GPA, after six years. With my grades in shambles from such a hard road, I never thought that graduate school would be possible. Standardized tests and advisors at other schools told me that I had waited seven years too long to get into graduate school, and that I wasn't capable of being successful or able to go back to school. However, I managed to find an ad about SNHU, late one night, while trying to find some way to get back into school. Several phone calls later, I arrived. Along with the academic advising team, I have had some positive expert professors. My experience at SNHU has paved the way for aspirations of teaching at the collegiate level that I never believed would be possible.
