"Applying to SNHU was the best decision I could have made for my education."

I've had my ups and downs. I started at a state university, and after a year and a half, I left because I was unhappy. I uprooted my life and moved myself to Massachusetts. I started at community college, a place where I never saw myself, and I started from the bottom up. I created a life for myself. I got my own apartment, and I worked full-time as well as going to school full-time. It wasn't until I saw advertisements online for SNHU that I knew I could still work toward my dream of getting a bachelor’s degree in creative writing. Applying to SNHU was the best decision I could have made for my education. Everyone here is so supportive and all the staff genuinely seems to care. I have never felt like I was really welcomed at a school before I found SNHU. I look forward to continuing my education here. And what is even better is that I can go to school online, while still working full-time and while moving to a different country. This school has everything I need.
