AS Accounting, Class of 2016

"Thank you SNHU! I am now making my educational dreams come true."

I never thought I would be able to go back to college to accomplish my goal of receiving degrees in areas I am interested in. I chose to be a young mother. I had four children, all about two years apart. The idea of school really went out the window for me. Unfortunately, for personal and medical reasons, my children went to live with family, and I decided to look into online classes to keep myself from losing my mind.

Coming back to school was the best choice I could have made. Choosing SNHU was also the best choice for me, seeing as the classes are online, and the staff is helpful and caring. Everyone from my professors to my advisors, and even the people at the bookstore are very courteous and welcoming.

I have struggled in a couple of classes, and my two advisors have made me feel like it is ok, and let me know that retaking the class is an option. I honestly feel that the college experience is so much different from what it was back in 2003 when I had tried to go to college right after high school. Back in 2003, it felt like if I struggled and failed a course I was a horrible student. Now, I feel like, if I fail, I just need more practice before I can succeed. Thank you SNHU! I am now making my educational dreams come true.
