"People were very good about giving feedback on work, and the professor was there from the beginning to the end."

After graduating from college in Chicago, I needed to attend a school that offered me a degree that I wanted. Unfortunately, I have to work full-time to be able to pay for school, feed myself and pay for a roof over my head. So, one day, after being frustrated with all the schools locally, a commercial on TV talked about SNHU. I pulled out my laptop and immediately sent them a message. To my surprise, I received an e-mail the next morning, introducing the school and what programs were available. At the beginning, I was a little hesitant to attend since it was far away, and online classes for me were a little bit weird. However, after my first course, I discovered that even though I was not in a classroom, it was as if I was there. People were very good about giving feedback on work, and the professor was there from the beginning to the end. I started to get very comfortable with the online courses, and now I recommend it to anyone who wishes to go back to school and cannot physically go to the classroom.

I think that SNHU has done a great job in providing students the opportunity to work full-time, and at the same time go back to school to get or finish their degrees. I am very proud to be part of this family, and it has been a great experience for me.
