"I want to thank SNHU for being there and making it possible for me to achieve a major goal of mine."
Right before 9/11, I took my son and daughter, left our home state of Virginia and moved to beautiful Myrtle Beach, S.C. I didn't know anyone and had no family support here. My children are now grown. I have a son who just graduated from the university here in town and a daughter who is a sophomore at that same university. I always thought my one regret was not furthering my education.
Currently, I'm a web designer and a realtor with both jobs working from home. One night, I happened to catch a few words of the end of an SNHU commercial and the URL on TV. The next day I applied with the help of an online chat advisor who held my hand and answered every question the entire way. I had no problem in choosing a major because I've always wanted to go into law, but SNHU had something more specific in mind for me — terrorism and homeland security. I thought I'd struck the jackpot because this is exactly what I want to be involved in. After seeing “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Lone Survivor,” and with the help of God, I found where I needed to be. Long-distance learning is the best possible solution for me as a single parent, and I want to thank SNHU for being there and making it possible for me to achieve a major goal of mine.
