"Being able to pick up the phone and speak with someone who has gotten to know me has been extremely beneficial."

Juggling working full-time, taking care of both my mother and grandmother, and diving back into school when I was surrounded by the upheavals of life, was a tough one. But I am doing it, and doing it to achieve bigger and better things in life. I have mastered the art of managing what needs to be done, and on time. I have to say, I am doing this for them and me. And for them to see me achieve something like this is truly amazing.

One thing that has made coming back to school work for me is harnessing not full, two-four hour blocks, but breaking things into pieces throughout the day. While I am on the train to work in the morning, I might read a chapter for class. Or while I am on lunch, I use my laptop to post on Blackboard or take a quiz. It has all managed to fall into place.

All of SNHU, from admissions, to my advisors and instructors have been 110% dedicated to my success, and have gone above and beyond what is called for. My advisors have been there to offer guidance whenever I have just needed to talk about things related to school. Being able to pick up the phone and speak with someone who has gotten to know me, and what I am looking for in my education, has been extremely beneficial.
