"Due to my experience so far with SNHU, I am very seriously considering going on for my master's degree as well."

Like most other people just out of high school, I had several hopes and dreams. I started at a two-year community college in my area, in a transfer program to a local four-year college. I completed my two years at the community college, where I left without obtaining a two-year degree, started my junior year and had to leave school due to an unexpected pregnancy. I was fortunate enough to have the ability to stay home and take care of my daughter. A second daughter arrived three years later, and my husband and I were living what we considered a nice life; I was still able to be a stay-at-home mom. I went back to work full-time when my youngest daughter turned four, but I always felt I left a goal unfinished as far as school was concerned. I went back and obtained my associate degree in accounting, while working full-time and moved on to obtain a bachelor's degree. That was interrupted by the illnesses of both of my parents, so yet again, I had to put my education on hold to take care of someone else. When I was ready to return to school, the school I had previously attended had closed.

I am so very excited that I found Southern New Hampshire University. I've found returning to school here to be a blessing and a joy, and I am so very excited to finish my degree here. I cannot explain how it feels to finally know I will achieve a goal I've been attempting for over twenty years. Due to my experience so far with SNHU, I am very seriously considering going on for my master's degree as well.
