BA Creative Writing & English - Fiction, Class of 2014

"My experience with SNHU has been wonderful."

After high school, I attended community college and earned my two-year degree in management. Then I entered the working world and realized that isn't at all what I wanted to do. I got married, we had a baby and life was passing quickly. I knew I wanted to go back to school, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to be when I grow up. After a lot of thinking, soul-searching, and Internet searching to find a school that works with my schedule — I found SNHU and knew it would be a perfect match for me. The degree programs offered are amazing and when I saw that creative writing is available, I knew that this is where I needed to go to be what I want to be — a writer (hopefully successful).

So far, my experience with SNHU has been wonderful. My life is crazy as I work from home, blog and cater. Not to mention that I have my family to take care of and my elderly grandfather lived with us for a while also. The flexibility is so great for me. I am so happy I chose SNHU, and I would recommend anyone looking to earn their degree to check into the programs here. I am so thankful that I found a school that offers what I want, has courses that move quickly — but not too quickly, and I will be done the at the end of this year. I am actually glad I waited 10 years after I graduated high school to finish my degree; otherwise I would have wasted money and time on a degree I don't think I would have been happy with.
