"I can’t believe all that SNHU has to offer students!"

Raising my three boys as a single mother has always been a challenge. Because I could never afford childcare, I chose to be self-employed, so I could bring my boys to work with me. This was a great way for us to be close, for them to learn how hard work is, and to learn the value of a dollar. And, as I look back now, I wouldn’t change a thing. As my eldest son reaches 22, I decided that I wanted more, but I never knew what it was I wanted. A few years ago, I accidentally realized what I really enjoyed doing. I started investigating a case about a man who claimed he was wrongly convicted in New Hampshire. After researching his case for years, I realized this is what I was meant to do. It just seemed that this investigating and researching thing came very natural to me. It was then that I realized I needed to go back to school and pursue a career in this field. I love investigating! My ideal career goal is to be a crime scene investigator or to work in cold case files. SNHU has made the choice to go back to school and the transition of being back in school very easy.

I can’t believe all that SNHU has to offer students! There is someone there for you every step of the way. They are dedicated to “my” success. My academic advisor, my professors, fellow classmates, and even my own children have become my own little cheering section, and they keep me motivated to strive for more. I wish I had enrolled in SNHU earlier! This is an amazing school with all that it has to offer, and I would recommend that to anyone interested in furthering their education to go to SNHU.
