"I am so thankful that I found SNHU and have recommended it to friends and family."

I had been laid off by the company I had been working with since I was 18. I had never gone to college because I assumed I would work with this company for the rest of my life. Four-and-a-half years later, that proved not to be the case. I had always talked about going back to school, but never had the motivation to do so. A few days after being laid off, I found out I was going to be a father. I immediately began researching degree programs in the IT field and one school that stood out to me was SNHU. The online program was new to me and seemed the only way I could obtain a degree while trying to get back to work and becoming a father.

Sure enough, a few years later, I graduated with honors in information technology and within a few weeks, I landed a great job with a great company. I am so thankful that I found SNHU and have recommended it to friends and family who are struggling with the motivation to get back to school or who struggle with an actual classroom. I will be continuing towards my bachelor’s degree with SNHU and look forward to the possibilities my schooling will open up for me.
