"The online program at SNHU is ideal for me with my busy life. [It] is perfect for all my needs."

I am a 49-year-old single mother. I began working on my degree at another university, but decided to transfer to Southern New Hampshire University. The university I transferred from was in the education business for the money. SNHU is nonprofit and cares about the education I receive. It has been a longtime goal of mine to receive a degree. I want to serve as a good role model for my daughter by working toward and obtaining this degree.

I work full-time at a Big Ten university as a graduate coordinator. It has been difficult at times to juggle a full-time job, school and an active daughter. The online program at SNHU is ideal for me with my busy life, and I don't have to take away time from my daughter. Being an older student, I didn't want to sit in a classroom with young students. The SNHU program is perfect for all my needs. I have found my SNHU online degree experience to be very rewarding.
