"From day one, everyone was so friendly and helpful in getting me acclimated to online learning."

Immediately after high school, I started working and all of a sudden, life became too busy. Too busy for school I thought, but I still wanted to go to college. Eight years later, I finally told myself that I need to make the time. While searching for an online school to fit around my life, I came across SNHU — which is exactly what I was looking for.

From day one, everyone was so friendly and helpful in getting me acclimated to online learning. I must admit I was pretty nervous in the beginning with not knowing what to expect. With the help of my advisor, it was a smooth transition. I could not believe all the resources available from SNHU to help me succeed. My enrollment advisor, new student advisor and program advisor have all been very supportive throughout this process. I can call them with any concerns I might have, and they are always willing to help. Right now, I work 50+ hours a week and take one to two classes at a time, depending on what I feel I can manage for each term. I am a year into my program and still have a ways to go, but I feel great knowing that everyday I am closer to my degree. The best part is that I still have plenty of free time to enjoy the things I like to do. At SNHU, I learned how to manage my time to be able to do all of these things, and keep my grades up at the same time. I couldn't ask for a better place to continue my education.
