BA General Studies, Class of 2014

"My academic advisor was extremely helpful along the way."

I first took college classes during 2003-2006 on a football scholarship at a state university. I left school before I finished to pursue a professional football career. But during my pursuit I was injured, and my career was cut short. I returned home and had no money to finish my degree. I worked for several years to earn enough money to return to school.

Choosing Southern New Hampshire University was an easy decision based on the first interaction I had with an SNHU staff member. They treated me like my future was important to them, and made me feel like they would help me as much as they could. My academic advisor was extremely helpful along the way. Perseverance helped me achieve the goal I set out to achieve over ten years ago.
