"The fact that I can almost feel that degree in my hands is definitely making me and my family feel like we are a success."

I'd been looking at finishing my degree for a couple years before finding SNHU. Every radio or TV commercial that advertised an online program for a school got researched. But every one I looked into either required one class a semester to be taken on a campus — which wasn't feasible as a full-time mom, or they didn't have my desired degree program. More often it was the latter. In January 2013, I saw a commercial for SNHU. I immediately pulled out the laptop and began looking into what the school offered. I not only found my degree program, but I also found I could complete my degree 100% online! I was excited beyond belief and put in a request to speak to a recruiter. Two months later, I was taking my first class!

It's been crazy, but so fun. My husband is actually now a student with SNHU, as well, after seeing that he too can get a degree 100% online. We've been each other's tutor, sounding board, coach and cheerleader. The fact that I can almost feel that degree in my hands is definitely making me and my family feel like “we” are a success, that I'm actually accomplishing something to better all our lives.
