Samantha Dempsey

BA Creative Writing & English - Fiction, Class of 2017

"I've only been at SNHU for three terms, and I couldn't imagine going through any other college."

Ever since I was a small girl, I have been reading volumes of books. The smell of the pages and the feeling of the paper between my fingers always filled me with such joy. I was a bookworm through and through. It was very rare to not see me with my nose in a book or in the school library. The more books I read, the stronger my passion for writing became. It was in my senior year that I had decided I wanted to become an author after successfully completing a children's book called "Mason the Monkey and the Golden Banana."

I found out about SNHU through one of my best friends who is currently attending the campus, and I decided to look into the college. When I found out that SNHU had a creative writing program with a concentration in fiction, I was overjoyed. My parents fully supported me when I told them that I would prefer to pursue online college instead of the traditional brick and mortar course.

Here at SNHU, everyone is extremely friendly, and when I first met my academic advisor, she made me feel like I was already part of the SNHU family. Help was always readily available from both SNHU and my parents. I've only been at SNHU for three terms, and I couldn't imagine going through any other college. The professors are affable and care about their students’ well-being. Every day I look forward to my classes, and how they'll help me on my way to becoming an author. Here at SNHU, I can see myself succeed.
