"SNHU has honestly given my life meaning again."

I never really gave school much consideration as a kid or a teenager. I failed a lot of classes simply because I didn't care. I had no prospects of college, so I did the minimum to skirt by and graduate, nothing more. Over the years, I watched friends go off to school and make something of their lives. Unfortunately, I developed a very severe case of anxiety, which leaves me unable to leave my house. I felt for certain college was well and truly out of my reach. But a good friend suggested I look online. Within the hour, I'd found SNHU and their creative writing program. I think I was enrolled by the end of that week. It was a fast and amazing process.

I'm a sophomore now and couldn't be happier to be here. There's not much in my life that's within my control, but this is. Being in school helps give me a sense of purpose, a reason to wake up in the morning. I'm not sure where I'd be without it, but it would be a dark place. SNHU has honestly given my life meaning again.
